Depression can be debilitating, can appear at any age, and is one of the most common and treatable mental illnesses. Up to 20% of the population may be affected by depression in their lifetime.
AMI-Quebec offers many programs to help both people suffering from depression and their loved ones. Consider attending one of our support groups (including one specifically for depression) or booking an appointment with one of our counselors (for family members only).
