Depression is a serious medical illness that negatively affects nearly one in 10 adults.

Nearly twice as many women as men, and about one in five teens according to a 2010 study by U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Symptoms include:

  •  Feeling sad, empty, hopeless, or numb
  •  Loss of energy or increased fatigue, insomnia or oversleeping
  •  Irritability or anxiety causing one to be short-tempered
  •  Trouble making decisions or thinking clearly
  •  Feeling guilty or worthless
  •  Thoughts of death and suicide

GTDAA’s focus is to bring awareness and end the “stigma” of mental health issues.
