Students Against Depression


Students Against Depression is a website of offering advice, information, guidance and resources to those affected by low mood, depression and suicidal thinking. Alongside clinically-validated information and resources it presents the experiences, strategies and advice of students themselves – after all, who is better placed to speak to their peers about how depression can be overcome.

One in four people will experience some kind of mental health problem in their lifetime. One in ten will experience depression or anxiety with depression in any one year. This statistic holds true for students and young people. Depression is one of the biggest dangers facing young people today.


Young people are in the best position to talk about the mental health of their peers. It is important that young people speak up and talk about mental health. The Charlie Waller Memorial Trust is in charge of the day-to-day running of Students Against Depression which shows the high quality of the campaign. It’s a really good website and the information provided it amazing.
