Let's talk

Depression can happen to anybody. It causes mental anguish and affects people’s ability to carry out everyday tasks. Fortunately, depression can be prevented and treated. In October 2016, the World Health Organization launched a one-year campaign to ensure that more people with depression, in all countries, both seek and get help. During the campaign, we encouraged individuals and organizations around the world to organize events in support of th campaign goal and to tell us about them on this platform.

The response was amazing. More than 300 activities were registered on the platform in 76 countries.

Countries with the highest number of activities registered were India (82 activities), the Islamic Republic of Iran (33 activities), the United States of America (19 activities) and Nigeria (15 activities).
