Preventing depression is everyone’s business
Everyone has mental health and everyone can take steps to prevent depression and improve their mental health.
In June 2010, we launched Mood Matters, our campaign to encourage people to take small steps to improve their mood and prevent depression from occuring. We asked 600 people what they thought about preventing depression and 89% said they thought it was possible to prevent depression in some cases.
