Aware was established in 1996 and is the only charity in Northern Ireland which works exclusively for those affected by depression, including family members and carers.

We currently have two offices – one in Derry/Londonderry and one in Belfast.

Our Mission is to create a society where as few people as possible experience depression, and those who do get the help they need.

We rely on our dedicated and caring volunteers who run our support groups and helpline. Many of our volunteers began as service users themselves and as such are an excellent asset to us and keep us informed on staying in touch with people's needs.

Services include:

  • Self Help Support Groups

  • Interactive Website

  • Telephone Helpline

  • Education Programmes

  • Information Outreach
