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.



MENTBEST will design, deliver and validate proven community-based interventions and innovative technologies to prevent and mitigate the mental health challenges associated with dramatic and rapid change in Europe.

The iFightDepression (iFD) tool is now available in Ukrainian language thanks to an initiative of the European Alliance Against Depression (EAAD).

Implementation of digital interventions for depression worldwide is a project that aims to explore perspectives of health care practitioners from primary care (general practitioners, family doctors and psychologists) toward digital interventions for depression. Practitioners in primary care can act as potential gate keepers of digital interventions and in this way might help to reduce the treatment gap for depression worldwide.

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