UCLA Depression Grand Challenge (UCLA DGC): Humanizing and Destigmatizing Depression
A key UCLA DGC focus is raising awareness & hope, by understanding stigma & developing targeted strategies to defeat it. We propose an event series to spark conversation & empower LA to humanize depression. Discussions will inform digital media campaigns to be disseminated throughout LA & beyond. We will inspire participants to serve as advocates who share their experiences more broadly, putting real faces to the varied realities of those living with depression & those close to them.
