70% of people can't access or afford the depression support they desperately want and need.
We're on a mission
to change that!
One out of five American adults will experience at least one major episode of depression this year.
Major depression is associated with greater functional impairment and higher societal costs than any other chronic health problem.
Another American dies by suicide every 12 minutes.
Depression is the leading cause of disability; and its burden on the U.S. economy is estimated at 210 billion dollars per year.
The LiveWell Foundation believes all people deserve equal access
to free and effective education and peer support to live well with depression.
Our mission is to educate and empower people affected by depression
with the skills and community support needed to transform their own lives.
The LiveWell Foundation works to:
Increase access to depression support for a wide and diverse population in need through free, innovative, and high-quality psychosocial education and peer support.
Foster healthy lives through the LiveWell Program©: a curriculum-based program that is strategically designed to teach people the skills they need to reduce symptoms and relapses of depression, and to improve wellbeing.
Create a sustainable model for widespread availability of depression treatment by training volunteer peers to lead the free and easy-to-access LiveWell Program© in their own communities and online.
Advocate for the evidence-based practice of peer-led interventions to become an integral part of depression prevention, treatment, and recovery services.
Challenge the stigma of depression and its related mental health issues by creating opportunities for people with lived experience to share their stories.
