The European Alliance Against Depression (EAAD) is an international non-profit organisation based in Leipzig, Germany, with several members and more than 100 regional network partners in Europe, Canada, Chile and Australia.

The main aim of the European Alliance Against Depression is to improve care and optimise treatment for patients with depressive disorders and to prevent suicidal behaviour. It was established in 2008 by a number of mental health experts from different European research institutions in order to sustain the EU-funded EAAD projects (2004-2008). The EAAD is involved in several European research projects targeting depression and suicide prevention.



More than 54,000 people in the countries of the European Union die from suicide every year. More than 90% of suicides occur in the context of a psychiatric disorder, of which the majority are depressive disorders. On 10th September 2020, the annual World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) will be held, a global awareness day with the aim of encouraging us to engage with each other and to join together to increase awareness of suicide prevention.
