Angèle de Jong

Angèle de Jong studied Child Development and Education -Mediadidactics- at the University of Amsterdam. She worked in the tv and film sector and as a project manager, counselor, and trainer on Diversity Policy in Education and Labor Market. About eight years ago she decided to be open about her background in Psychiatry. Nowadays she works as a developer/ trainer on diverse courses about Stigma and Recovery. For Foundation Beautiful Distress, she’s a co-creator for projects like Madness meets Art. She sees art and creativity as important languages to make psychological suffering visible and tangible and to discuss prejudices against mental illness.
