If we’re going to stamp out depression in Augusta and worldwide we first have to stamp out stigma and ignorance.
We think stigma and ignorance stem from much the same problem.
Ignorance and stigma go hand and glove. We need to sanitize depression, and other mental illnesses, and see them for what they are.
Please read this website to learn the facts about psychiatric diseases. Please read other sources, too. We don’t care where the information comes from as long as it is accurate. The basis of the problem is ignorance of the facts.
We may not know what causes psychiatric illnesses, but we know they are brain diseases.
Just like cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, these are diseases of an organ of the body. Depression kills people. Psychiatric illnesses are as real as a heart attack, and do as much damage.

We need to pay attention to these brain diseases. Victims deserve the best treatment. Pretending otherwise is ignorant, and prejudiced.
Let’s work together to stamp out ignorance and stigma. Let’s unite behind depression’s victims. Let’s unite to stamp out depression worldwide.
