Activities to increase awareness of psychiatric and neurological disorders

Psychiatric and neurological disorders are relatively common, affecting 1 in 5 people. Despite this, a lack of understanding of these conditions leads to further suffering due to misconceptions and discrimination.
Otsuka Pharmaceutical is working to increase awareness of such conditions. With the goal of giving people a deeper insight into the causes and effects, we created the "Connect Pen & Notebook". We have also hosted an interactive photo installation, the "Face to Face Portrait Exhibition". This gives visitors the opportunity to better understand the experience of sufferers, and witness the positive impact that friends and family can have on recovery.
To help increase awareness further, we have also created a dedicated website though which anyone can learn more about psychiatric and neurological disorders.
