Animus Association is a large, well-established Bulgarian NGO, providing rehabilitation, counselling and psychotherapy services to adults, young people and children. It also works in the community, lobbying and working with a network of partners, and runs a training centre for professionals and students. Animus runs a helpline and a crisis unit for survivors of violence, and the National Helpline for Children.
After 20 years of working in treatment and rehabilitation, Animus is adding mental health promotion to its services, and the launch of Zippy’s Friends in Sofia marks the first step in this initiative.
The pilot programme in Bulgaria was enabled by funding from EEA grants, through the cooperation of Voksne for Barn, which runs Zippy’s Friends in Norway.
