Handouts on depression


The handouts available from this page provide general information on the characteristics of depression and how depression can be prevented and treated. They are intended for people who are living with depression themselves or who know someone who is. They include practical advice on what to do.

We hope you will find these materials useful for your campaign activities. Here are a few ideas for dissemination: health-care centres, doctors’ surgeries, clinics, hospitals, schools, colleges and universities, supermarkets, leisure and social clubs, places of work, places of worship, and public transport.

Each handout is being produced in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish. These versions will be made available on this website as they are finalized.
