What sets LiveWell Apart?
EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICE OF PEER SUPPORT
ADVANCING THE QUALITY OF CARE
Behavioral health and psycho-education at its most innovative, relevant, and effective, the LiveWell Program© stands apart as a curriculum-based wellness program strategically designed to teach people the skills they need to reduce their own symptoms and relapses of depression, and to increase wellbeing.
In fact, bringing together various evidence-based strategies for the treatment of depression into one integrated Guided Self-Care experiential-learning program is one of the things that distinguishes LiveWell in the behaviroal health field.
EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES TO HELP THEMSELVES THROUGH
A FREE, VOLUNTEER-RUN, PEER-LED PUBLIC HEALTH PROGRAM
Our community-based and online LiveWell support groups are led by trained volunteer peers from diverse backgrounds and professions with lived experience of depression, recovery, and living well.
They volunteer because they know 'giving back' has proven therapeutic value for their own mental health, and because they believe in the LiveWell mission that all people should have equal access to free and effective depression support.
The LiveWell Program© is endorsed by leading mental health experts

Our educational-based curriculum
The LiveWell Program© is strategically designed to empower people to take control of their own mental health care. We teach people the skills and evidence-based wellness strategies they need to reduce symptoms and relapses of depression, and to increase well-being.
Research shows that peer support and Guided Self-Care are not just evidence-based practices, but they are also proven to be as effective as psychotherapy for the treatment of depression.

A LiveWell Manifesto
LiveWell: it’s the radical idea of creating connection and hope in an alienated and despairing world. It's changing the way society tackles depression and suicide, and building a world based on shared responsibility, support, and dignity for the mental health of our communities.
It starts by standing with the depressed, listening to their collective voices, and recognizing wisdom and potential where others see illness and futility.
It thrives on moral imagination: the humility to see the world as it is, and the audacity to imagine the world as it could be. It’s having the ambition to learn at the edge, the wisdom to admit failure, and the courage to start again.
We are, at heart, conservationists. And people of faith. Concerned citizens
Confuscius.. a search for our roots, which he perceived as grounded in humanity's deepest needs for belonging and communicating. He had faith in the cuulative power of culture. The fact that traditional ways had lost vitality did not, for him, diminish their potential for regeneration in the future. In fat, C's sense of history was so strong that he saw himself as a cnsevationists reposonsible for for the contiunity of the cultural values and the scial norms that had worked so well for the idealized civilization of the Western Zhou dynasty.
It demands investing as a means, not an end, daring to go where markets have failed and aid has fallen short.
It makes capital work for us, not control us.
It makes media work for us, not control us.
It requires patience and kindness, resilience and grit: a hard-edged hope. It’s leadership that rejects complacency, breaks through bureaucracy, and challenges corruption. Doing what’s right, not what’s easy.
