The mission of the Foundation is to fund research through major university medical research centers that leads to better treatment options for depression and depressive disorders, and ultimately, to find a cure for this debilitating, and too often, deadly, disease.
- Depression is both a disease and a symptom of many other diseases. Make no mistake, depression is real. The pain is real. The suffering is real. It is time to find a solution and stop the suffering. No one should have to suffer this way.
- Together, we can find solutions to end the effects of this debilitating, and too often deadly, disease.
- Together, we can find corrective solutions that will save lives and help those who suffer to return to a better quality of life.
"Every suicide is a tragedy. The impact on families, friends and communities is devastating and far-reaching, even long after persons dear to them have taken their own lives".
