• Peer-to-Peer

    An Evidence-Based Collaboration between the University of Michigan Depression Center and the Washtenaw Intermediate School District.

    The P2P program was built on the premise that many mental health disorders first present themselves during adolescence and teens are more likely to listen to other teens than well-meaning adults. The goals of the Peer-to-Peer Depression Awareness Campaign are to 1) educate middle and high school students about depression and depressive illnesses, and 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, bipolar disorder, and related illnesses.
