INC Non Profit Lab


INC Non Profit Lab, our permanent workshop established in 2022 to investigate the context and challenges that the Third Sector must face, returns with a second research project, once again sponsored by Rai for Sustainability – ESG, dedicated to a major contemporary emergency: psychological distress

The Era of Discomfort

The dark sickness of our time: Third’s Sector concerns

Psychological distress is on the rise and affects increasingly larger segments of the Italian population.

The second research conducted by INC Non Profit Lab quantifies this phenomenon and tells us that 60.1% of Italians believe they have been living with one or more psychological disorders for years. Women are more affected (65%), as are young people from Generation Z (75%, reaching as high as 81% in the case of women).

These are impressive and almost unbelievable numbers.

With this study, which collected the perspectives of Italians and 40 Non-Profit Organizations active in this field, we aim to open a dialogue to better understand the problem and provide concrete guidance to the institutions in our country that can and should address it.

It is a problem in which the Third Sector once again demonstrates the importance of its role in providing tangible answers to a dramatically increased demand for help in recent years. 

2023 Research Highlights

INC Non Profit Lab

The INC Non-Profit Lab is born as an open space with the aim of providing those engaged in the communication of social issues with a small but thoughtful and passionate contribution to understanding the major phenomena that permeate our society.

Social communication is our area of expertise, but also a great passion: for more than twenty-five years, we have been alongside non-governmental organizations, non-profits, and foundations to tell their stories, raise awareness, and build reputation.
