WORKING TOGETHER TO REDUCE THE IMPACT THAT DEPRESSION HAS ON OUR COMMUNITIES
Partnering with the LiveWell Foundation
Our partners are changemakers - working with us to help ensure all people have easy access to free and effective depression support...one neighborhood at a time! They share our belief that every individual deserves the right to learn the skills they need to not only better manage or recover from depression, but also to reach their full potential.
DONATING SPACE TO HOST WEEKLY LIVEWELL GROUPS, THESE LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS HELP MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO OFFER OUR SERVICES AT NO COST TO THE COMMUNITY:
WHAT'S HOT. WHAT'S NEW. AND WHAT'S IN DEVELOPMENT.
LiveWell Facilitator Training at JEVS
Each year, JEVS Human Services touches the lives of nearly 30,000 individuals with physical, developmental, and emotional challenges.
We are thrilled to be training their select staff (self-identified employees with lived experience of depression) to lead their own LiveWell support groups at various JEVS locations.

PILOT PROGRAM: SPRING 2020
Thanks to a generous grant from Children Can Shape the Future (a nonprofit foundation that invests in innovative education in both Philadelphia and Camden), we have created LiveWell Schools: a holistic certificate program with a focus on depression awareness and suicide prevention for schools to demonstrate their ongoing commitment to the mental health of its students and community.
The newly-developed, evidence-based LiveWell School experiential-learning curriculum will be piloted in 2-3 three local high schools this Spring.
STARTS FEBRUARY 2020
