You’d Never Say, ‘It’s just cancer, get over it.’ – “IT” is depression.

The Depression Is Real Coalition has developed a national communications campaign to educate Americans on the truth about depression. It includes new public service announcements for television, radio, and print.

The purpose of the campaign is to help educate the public about the true nature of depression, and to offer hope. If you or someone you care about has ever lived with depression, you know depression is real. But there are others who don’t understand the true nature of depression.

Depression is biologically based, like diabetes. And like cancer, it can be fatal. Fortunately, it can also be treated…There is HOPE! If you would like to learn more, check out the resources at the Depression Is Real site.
