Alliance Against Depression (AAD) – Global Best Practice

Good mental health is fundamental to the well-being of individuals, families and communities.

The strong link between depression and the prevention of suicidal behaviour requires a focus on improving the identification and treatment of depression.

The Alliance Against Depression (AAD) is an approach based on evaluated trials and is recognised as world’s best practice for the care of people with depression and prevention of suicidal behaviour. The initial implementation of the framework in the trial region of Nuremberg (The Nuremberg Alliance Against Depression) resulted in a 24% reduction of suicidal behaviour within a two-year period”.
