Families for Depression Awareness proudly announces our official affiliation with the NOW Campaign, a national movement to make addressing mental health and addiction one of the top priorities in politics, policy, and business. With the approaching presidential election year, FFDA agrees that now is the time to build this grassroots movement to drive solutions to the problems in our systems of care for mental health and addiction.
Mental health conditions and addiction touch the lives of millions of Americans, with about 18 percent adults and 13-20 percent of children and teens having a mental health condition in any given year and the consequences of addiction becoming evident all over the country. We need to transform the way these disorders are treated in our healthcare system and ensure that all people get the treatment and services they need.
Families for Depression Awareness is dedicated to helping families who are dealing with a loved one living with depression or bipolar disorder. Together with the NOW Campaign, we’ll bring much-needed attention to the issues that these families face every day.
If you care about mental health issues, consider becoming a supporter of the NOW Campaign. Join us as we battle the negative perceptions and stigmas that surround mental health and addiction.
We’ll keep you updated on events related to the campaign, giving you the opportunity to become involved. Learn more at the NOW Campaign website.
