The Depression Alliance is a non-profit organization in the United Kingdom that is run by and for individuals affected by depression and their caregivers. Depression is characterized by persistent sadness with feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. The Depression Alliance was established in 1974 and currently consists of over 3,000 members and approximately 100 self-help groups. The alliance is dedicated to providing information about the nature of depression and how it may be overcome, offering networking opportunities to affected individuals, enabling relatives and friends to understand and cope with the problems that arise when a family member or friend is depressed, and helping members form self-help groups that provide mutual support. In addition, the Depression Alliance works to raise awareness to increase public understanding, cooperates with professionals who care for affected individuals, and promotes and encourages research into the causes and treatment of depression.
