The toolset includes a cognitive behavioral tool, Good Days Ahead, which through an engaging design and format, helps individuals to learn skills that can help them overcome depression, anxiety and life’s challenges. The site teamed with TWLOHA because of its mission to find help for people struggling with depression by encouraging, informing, inspiring and investing directly into treatment and recovery.
Proceeds from the campaign will go directly to programs that aid in helping people coping with depression and anxiety.
About Help for Depression
HelpForDepression.com was founded on the belief that a combination of therapies is most often the best approach to treating depression. Our aim is to provide a comprehensive (or as comprehensive as possible) explanation of the various approaches and treatments for depression as a critical starting point for individuals and/or their loved ones. HelpForDepression.com is a resource for people to understand their options and better prepare themselves for conversations with you doctors. In addition to explaining various treatments, we highlight combinations of therapies that often work well together, but urge conversations with doctors as each individual responds differently and the right combination of treatments for one patient is often not right for another.
