Who We Are
‘Break the Stigma for Families’ is a non-profit association initiated by two child psychiatrists: Cecilia Prins-Aardema (GGZ Drenthe) and Andrés Martin (Yale Child Study Center, New Haven, Connecticut). Both their families have been directly impacted by mental illnesses, and with this campaign they hope to shed light on a problem that has been invisible for too long.
