Depression UK

Depression UK

Depression UK (D-UK) is a national Self Help Organisation that offers support to its several hundred members. Most suffer from depression; others may be past sufferers, or care for those who have the illness.

Depression UK has operated within the UK since it was founded in 1973, and was first registered as a charity in 1979. This independent Not for Profit organisation is run entirely by a team of up to ten volunteers who work from their own homes. It is self-funding and receives no grants, advertising income or any other external income.

D-UK’s aims are to:
Offer fellowship (friendliness), to anyone troubled by depression, to help him or her overcome their illness.
Offer mutual support and encourage self help.
Overcome the isolation felt by many people with depression, and help break down the stigma attached to this illness.
Maintain the confidentiality of members at all times.
Attempt to meet the needs of sufferers not covered by health professionals.
Neither give medical advice nor endorse any medical treatment or product – because we are not qualified to do so.
