If you know someone who is dealing with depression, tell them that they are not alone. Tell them that there are others willing to help them cope with a disease that sometimes makes you feel as if you're alone on a deserted island.

We are a non profit organization whose mission is to bring awareness to depression, allowing those who suffer to take off the mask of guilt and shame, all while educating those who love them. No need is too small and no voice is too quiet to be heard. We will devote the time and energy necessary to educate, advocate and help to heal those who need it.
Depression can often feel like you are drowning without ever dying. Anyone who has never experienced this could not understand the frustration, the guilt and the shame of living with depression, but there is hope. Depression is not a death sentence, It can be controlled and managed, even overcome with the correct plan in place. I've dealt with depression for over 20 years and I can tell you first hand that I understand. I understand your pain, but I also understand that you MUST fight back, WE must fight back. You must decide that depression will not keep you from living your life to the fullest.
OUR GOAL IS TO GET AT LEAST 10,000 PEOPLE in 2017 TO SEEK HELP THROUGH TREATMENT OR DIAGNOSIS, AND OTHERS TO SEEK INFORMATION SO THAT MAY BETTER HELP THOSE THEY LOVE AND SUPPORT.
