We're Mind, the mental health charity. We provide advice and support to anyone with a mental health problem. We're continuing to run Friends in Need and to support Depression Alliance's self-help groups. We can offer you advice and support on depression, too.

Who we are

At Depression Alliance we bring people together to end the loneliness and isolation that so often comes with depression.

Our support network is a safe, friendly and easy way to share understanding, information and friendship through depression and recovery. Whether you’re currently going through depression or you’re exploring recovery, we can put you in touch with others who understand, through our self help groups or through Friends in Need.

Depression Alliance is the leading charity in the UK for anyone affected by depression, and we can help you meet and chat to others in your local area, join a self help group, and learn more about depression, treatment and recovery. We also campaign to end the stigma of depression and to raise awareness of what it means to live with it. With 1 in 5 people affected by the condition, it’s vital that our friends, family, workplaces and communities are providing the right support and understanding to help people get better and stay well. Depression Alliance has almost 40 years experience in working closely with healthcare professionals and government agencies, to improve local services and to ensure a healthier, happier life for the millions affected by depression.
