Know
AVIFES

In 1986 we started our journey. We are born of the need and enthusiasm of the families of people with mental illness, a need and an enthusiasm that made us useful, active and adventurous. We started out a very difficult time for mental health and set out, from our beginnings, a double challenge: to claim new and better resources, and to stand up to social stigma.
