Aware’s services exist to provide extra support to anyone going through depression, as well as their families and loves ones. Going through depression can be a lonely experience and we want people to know they are not alone.
Last month, our dedicated volunteers answered 1,795 calls on our loCall helpline, while the firstname.lastname@example.org service replied to almost 200 emails (183) from people seeking support. Our online support group service continues to grow, with 45 groups held on Aware.ie during November. Meanwhile, face-to-face support groups took place in about 50 locations nationwide.
