Aware- Helping Defeat Depression
Aware is a voluntary organisation formed in 1985 by a group of interested patients, relatives and mental health professionals, whose aims are to assist that section of the population whoses lives are directly affected by depression.
300,000 people in Ireland currently suffer from depression but many hide their depression and never get help. Sadly, over 500 people take their own life each year. Aware, since its foundation in 1985 has been working energetically to bring support to sufferers of depression, and their families and to dispel the myths and misunderstandings of this devastating illness.
