Unlike other non-profit organizations, Families for Depression Awareness:

  • Focuses on family members and friends of those who are depressed, and caregivers that usually operate with little or no guidance or support.
  • Deals only with depressive disorders, the most prevalent mental illnesses, and leading causes of suicide.
  • Promotes depression awareness through organized communications programs, run by experienced marketing, business, and medical experts who have been touched by depression in their family or profession.
