Half of people with depression are undiagnosed. An estimated 10% of the population may have this condition throughout his life, so it is important for mental health.

It is important to strengthen the personality and work from prevention because according to the World Health Organization (WHO), by 2020 depression “will be the leading cause of disability worldwide.”

Increasingly the origin of mental illness and the most appropriate treatment is known, but it is known that 70% of these patients relapse in the disease, mainly by stopping treatment, so we needed psychoeducation programs and Groups self-help.

The objectives of the Depression Alliance are:

  • Psychoeducation to patients and families in order to better understand depression.
  • Encourage and promote compliance.
  • Take an active role in managing the problem.
  • Avoid loneliness and isolation with loss of self-esteem.
  • Reporting and tools to rediscover the inner strength and courage and manage the recovery process.
  • Share experiences, addressing emotions, feeling understood and better understand their illness.
  • Sensitize public opinion to remove the social stigma of mental illness through campaigns in the media.
