If I had to pay for how much I get out of the LiveWell groups, I can’t even imagine what the bill would be.” DAVID R.

I had a hard couple of months where coping seemed almost impossible, and then I found LiveWell. I cannot begin to express what this group has done for me.”

This group has given me faith in humanity.”

AND HERE’S WHAT’S ALREADY HAPPENING IN 2018: WE’RE EXPANDING OUR PROGAMMING! LiveWell Yoga and LiveWell Barbers (a network of volunteer barbers “on the front” line of depression awareness and suicide prevention in their own shops and communities) have already been launched.

I call it depression class, because every time I come, I learn so much.” SUN LEE P.

LiveWell has given me tools to improve not just my depression. I can honestly say it has changed my whole life.”

SUCCESS EXCEEDED

1,200

Philadelphians is currently struggling with the painful and at-timesdebilitating symptoms of depression. Yet over 70% of them cannot access the care they desperately want and need. Untreated depression (and suicide) is devastating individuals, their families, and our communities.

I walk out of these meetings so energized and uplifted, and it carries me through the week”

WE’RE OFFERING NEW SUPPORT GROUPS! In Center City and West Philadelphia, two new weekly LiveWell Depression Support Groups will be up and running by May. As always, these groups are FREE and easy to access (no insurance/referrals required and walk-ins welcome). WE’RE BEING STUDIED BY LEADERS IN THE FIELD! A mental health epidemiologist at NYU’s Dept. of Global Public Health has chosen the curriculum-based LiveWell Program for a research study. We’re hoping positive outcomes of this pilot study will further evidence the positive impact LiveWell is having on people’s lives.
