In 2018, the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA), Alberta Division began the MDD Project- a multi-phase plan to research Major Depressive Disorder’s (MDD) impact through a lens of lived experience, transfer that knowledge to the public, offer resources and tools and advocate for increased supports in governance and the workplace
With CMHA, Alberta Division’s research defining pressing issues facing persons living with MDD and how they manage it, the path toward addressing these issues becomes clearer. The MDD project seeks to realize this path through continued research, education, amplification of the voices of experts and lived experience, provision of tools, resources and advocacy for increased supports.
CMHA has resources for family and friends of those living with MDD. These resources cover reaction and adjustments, what to expect when depression appears and how to help.
Reaching out for help is an important step. Talk with someone you trust about how you feel. Life can be overwhelming and there are supports available to you.
