Our mission is to help families recognize and cope with depressive disorders to get people well and prevent suicides.  Millions of people have depression, but half of them do not seek help because of social stigma. Without treatment, these individuals and their families suffer in silence – and tragically, many take their lives.

Families for Depression Awareness provides education, outreach, and training to support families and is made up of families who have lost a family member to suicide or have watched a loved one suffer with depression, with little knowledge about how to help.

We offer an educational web site (www.familyaware.org), workshops and brochures, educational conferences and events, media campaigns, depression wellness guides and advocacy to support families with depression. Sign up for our email newsletter to learn more.

All proceeds will benefit our programs and help us provide even more resources. Please show your support by bidding on our exciting auction items!
