The marchers want to get people to start talking more openly about mental health and remove the stigma.

The Swiss Health Observatory says mental health is one of the most common and disabling conditions – and it can affect almost anyone at some point in their lives.

The Mad Pride movement started in Toronto in 1993 in response to prejudice against people with psychiatric problems.
