Stand up against depression

The Stand up against depression campaign is for everyone who wants to save lives and end the loneliness and isolation of depression.

As a tribute to Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society, this inspiring campaign created by Depression Alliance supporter Luca is sweeping the nation, and now you can get involved.

Post a picture of yourself on Twitter or Facebook using #standupagainstdepression and donate to Depression Alliance to help us end the loneliness of depression.

“I was deeply saddened by the death of Robin Williams. The gesture is symbolic for taking a stand against this silent, devastating disease that can ruin a person's ability to live happily and prosper. So let's take a stand and give a helping hand to someone who desperately needs it.”
Luca, Depression Alliance campaigner

Your donation could help us create a supportive community in your area, so that the one in five people affected by this devastating condition get the help and support they so desperately need.
