EAAD: From Nuremberg to Overseas
Nuremberg Alliance Against Depression celebrates 15th Anniversary
The EAAD model was initially implemented and evaluated in the city of Nuremberg which is therefore considered as the "Big Bang" of our network of Alliances Against Depression.
The model project for the EAAD, the Nuremberg Alliance Against Depression, was clearly effective in reducing suicidal behaviour and in improving the care of depressed patients. The 2-years intervention in Nuremberg was associated with a statistically significant and clinically highly relevant reduction in the number of suicidal acts compared to the baseline year 2000 as well as compared to a control region.
The anniversary was celebrated with an informational event on depression and expert speakers in depression research and e-Mental Health.
Happy Anniversary, Nuremberg, and keep up the outstanding work!
