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.
70% of people can't access or afford the depression support they desperately want and need.
We're on a mission
to change that!
Leading A New Century of Depression Treatment
Peer-led behavioral health and psychoeducation at its most innovative, relevant, effective, and sustainble
OUR MISSION: Dedicated to reducing the impact that depression has on our society, the LiveWell Foundation works to ensure all people have equal access to free and effective peer-led depression support.
With a vision of mental health equity, our nonprofit works to:
Increase access to depression support for a wide and diverse population in need through no-cost and high-quality peer-support
Advance prevention, treatment, and recovery services for the evidence-based intervention of peer support for depression
Transform lives through the LiveWell Program©: a one-of-a-kind, Guided Self-Care curriculum that is strategically designed to empower people to take control of their own depression treatment and ongoing mental health care
Advocate for peer-led interventions to become a routine part of depression treatment
Reduce the stigma of depression (and its related mental health issues) by creating opportunties for people with lived experience of recovery and living well to share their stories with the public
"The LiveWell Foundation's work is very important, and should make a real impact on [the treatment of] chronic depression."
-- Dr. Aaron T. Beck, MD,
the father of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
