Together we can take a stand against depression, raise awareness and fight stigma!
In communities across this country, mental health organizations, community groups, caring companies and concerned employees and volunteers are organizing local walks, runs, rides and other events to raise awareness about depression and other mood disorders and help reduce the stigma that is unfairly associated with a mental illness.
