Blue Horse Cafe / A cafe that employs schizophrenic patients

The Blue Horse Cafe provides work opportunities for schizophrenic patients. Working strengthens the patients' self-esteem and makes them more active in society.
Located in Ankara, the Cafe is a therapeutic place where patients feel useful, keep busy and have daily exchanges with customers and passers-by. In addition to helping patients socialize, the interactions with the public also contribute to the reduction of prejudice against people with schizophrenia.
Since its opening in 2009, the Blue Horse Cafe has given work to over 30 schizophrenic patients and has become a beam of hope for the social inclusion of the mentally ill in Turkey.
