The objectives of the project are:
1. Carrying out a program of socialization and recreation (activities: trips in Brașov county (visit the Black Church, visit the Zoological Garden, visit the Râșnov Fortress and DinoPark), trips in Bucharest (visit the Estuar Foundation and the National Museum of Natural History, Grigore Ant) for a number of 10 beneficiaries with chronic mental health diseases of Brașov county.

It has been scientifically proven that horse therapy (hypotherapy) is very beneficial for people with disabilities that can be observed psychically and physically. The interaction with the horse stimulates the tactile sense when it touches, perhaps even through environmental stimuli, the owners are very active, resulting in the creation of their own perceptions. Riding, clearly if it is an exercise, is regarded as a joy, as a success. The benefits of hypotherapy are manifold: attention is applied, the movements are repeated and the muscles can be relaxed and, thus, the body will calm down, the growth of self-confidence (when the horse can be controlled) will be able to integrate into society, public interest for the environment, emotional control and self-discipline, independence.

Dance therapy is a possible way of expressing and externalizing one's inner and sentimental life.

The psychotherapy group is very important when completing drug treatments so that they can be maintained with a better level of functioning. It is a way of exploring, identifying and capitalizing on the inner resources, about downloading feelings, fears and frustrations related to illness but also to awareness of the disease.

4. Information and awareness of the country group's problem at community level and reducing the risk of social marginalization by organizing the event at community level.
