CASS supports Depression Awareness Week 18 - 24 April 2016
18th - 24th April 2016 marks Depression Awareness Week. Run by Depression
Alliance, the campaign week is aimed at raising awareness of
this invisible and still largely misunderstood illness.
One in five people is affected by depression in the UK and numbers
are currently rising. It's therefore really important that friends,
family members and colleagues have a good understanding of how the
illness impacts people and what they can do to help.
How can I get involved?
Depression Alliance has put together some great resources on their website for anyone
wanting to promote Depression Awareness Week through conversations,
social media or hosting an event.
If you're interested in getting involved in Bristol, don't forget
to let us know! We can help you publicise your event and provide
you with further information.
