The European Alliance Against Depression (EAAD) is an international non-profit organisation based in Leipzig, Germany, with several members and more than 100 regional network partners in Europe, Canada, Chile and Australia.

The main aim of the European Alliance Against Depression is to improve care and optimise treatment for patients with depressive disorders and to prevent suicidal behaviour. It was established in 2008 by a number of mental health experts from different European research institutions in order to sustain the EU-funded EAAD projects (2004-2008). The EAAD is involved in several European research projects targeting depression and suicide prevention.

The EAAD-Best consortium this week will SpeakUpForMentalHealth.

To support patients suffering from depression – EAAD-Best promotes the iFightDepression tool, an evidence-based best practice digital intervention supporting a growing number of youths and adults with mild to moderate depression across Europe.

On May 1st, 2022, the MENTUPP Consortium proudly supports International Workers’ Day 2022. To support decision-makers to place greater focus on mental health in occupational settings, a team of international experts has designed an evidence-based online mental health promotion tool.

Internship with the EAAD

My name is Alexandra Clement, and I am a first year PhD student in the PhD Health Quality program at Queen’s University, which is in Ontario, Canada. Over the summer in 2021, I was incredibly fortunate to have the EAAD host my internship, with Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hegerl as my supervisor.

www.ifightdepression.com is a brand and initiative of the European Alliance Against Depression (EAAD).

The iFightDepression website and online self-management tool were co-funded by the Health Programme of the European Union.
