Taking steps to end the stigma of depression.

Many families struggling with depression don’t seek help because they’re afraid or ashamed. Strides Against Stigma is a unique event dedicated to raising awareness of depressive disorders and building a community that erases the stigma of depression. Unlike a traditional walk-a-thon, participants spend their day at a single location engaging in a variety of fun, educational, and entertaining activities while counting their strides on pedometers.
