WELCOME

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.

DEPRESSION CAN BE TREATED

EAAD NEWS & UPDATES

Workplaces have experienced rapid changes in recent years, driven by digital and green transitions (‘twin transition’) and the COVID-19 pandemic. New ways of working and managing working environments have arisen, and these can affect the physical and mental health of workers in new ways, both positive and negative. Workplaces can be health-promoting environments, but how this can be achieved in practice needs exploration.


MENTBEST will design, deliver and validate proven community-based interventions and innovative technologies to prevent and mitigate the mental health challenges associated with dramatic and rapid change in Europe.


The iFightDepression (iFD) tool is now available in Ukrainian language thanks to an initiative of the European Alliance Against Depression (EAAD).
