Depression is a common illness.

Depression can affect anyone.

Depression can be treated.

Belmont Alliance Against Depression

Promoting mental wellbeing in our neighbourhoods

Belmont Alliance Against Depression is led by a committee of community members and supported by the City of Belmont and WA Primary Health Alliance. Our role is to support the implementation of the Alliance Against Depression framework. Our aim is to raise awareness of depression, an illness which can be treated. Our goal is to improve the care and treatment of those living with depression, and to connect their families and loved ones to their own support services and networks.

By building local knowledge, each of us can better identify those amongst us living with depression. We can support these people to access the help that they need.

Many local services and resources can be found in our website directories. However we do stress that if symptoms of depression have lasted for more than two weeks, a person should visit their GP to receive the right level of care to suit their needs.

If you need help now:

Call 000 if someone is in immediate danger or visit your nearest hospital emergency department.

Call 1300 555 788 if someone is experiencing a mental health crisis.
