Every year, one out of five American adults will experience at least one major depressive episode.
Yet over 70% of us cannot access or afford the treatment and support we desperately want and need.
The LiveWell Foundation provides FREE and effective depression support to all people in our community!
Untreated depression is devastating the lives of individuals,
families, and our communities. Help us make a difference!

Untreated depression is devastating the lives of individuals, families, and our communities.
Major depression is associated with greater functional impairment and higher societal costs than any other chronic health problem. Depression and suicidality are linked to unemployment, poverty, homelessness, interpersonal problems, family instability, substance use, a wide range of chronic physical llnesses, and an inability to access health care. Depression’s annual toll on the U.S. economy is estimated at $210 billion each year; and another American dies by suicide every 12 minutes.
In Philadelphia -- where the LiveWell Foundation is located -- the high proportion of people struggling with depression and mental health issues presents "a significant public health challenge for the city" (Phila. Dept. of Public Health, 2016).
Furthermore, because poverty and unemployment are linked to high levels of severe depression and suicidality, Philadelphia -- the U.S. city with the highest rate of deep poverty -- is being hit especially hard by this national public health crisis.
