Peer-To-Peer Depression Awareness Campaign

A Collaboration between the University of Michigan Depression Center and the Ann Arbor Public Schools

Program Overview
In 2009, the University of Michigan Depression Center, in partnership with Ann Arbor Public Schools, started the Peer-to-Peer Depression Awareness Campaign (P2P). The goals of the Peer-to-Peer Depression Awareness Campaign are to:

  1. Educate high school students about depression and depressive illnesses.
  2. Support them in finding creative ways to convey this knowledge to their peers in order to reduce stigma, raise awareness, encourage help-seeking when needed, and ultimately, help to promote the early detection of depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and related illnesses.

Since 2009, the program has expanded to high schools outside of Ann Arbor and beyond Washtenaw County, as well as expanded to middle schools.
