Within the Project “Positive attitude development - access to labour market for young adults with mental health problems” 9 cartoons were created under Helpific’s supervision to decrease the prejudice and shame in society related to mental health disorders, to promote social involvement and employment of young people with mental health problems.

Exciting and intriguing cartoons are on air on Sundays on Estonian Television from 11.43 after the telecast “Iseolemine” (“Independent existence”). “Iseolemine” is Margus Saar’s journey to special people, who despite a difficult disease or disability have tried to find a way for coping themselves.

You will find the cartoons on the current page, on Facebook and Youtube channel. The cartoons have Estonian, Russian, English and Finnish subtitles.

The following people contributed to the creation of the cartoons

Keiu Roosimägi - project coordinator

Martin Palm - script

Merlyn Kotljar - animation and installation

Ajar Stuudio - audio- and sound effects
