Work in Progress is a UK-wide campaign that seeks to raise awareness of the challenges to employment faced by people with depression and drive policy initiatives that support improved outcomes across the UK. It is supported by partners across the UK - Depression Alliance, Action on Depression, Gofal and AWARE. The campaign is sponsored by Lundbeck within the guidance of the ABPI code of practice.

At Depression Alliance we believe together, we're happier, which is why with funding from The Insurance Charities we set up Friends in Need, to create a platform that can help end the loneliness and isolation that often comes with depression.
Charities, celebrities, MPs and faith leaders are amongst the many signatories to back the new Equality for Mental Health Campaign.
