The American Psychiatric Foundation granted $50,000 to the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) in support of its Men and Depression Awareness Project. The project seeks to educate men and their families about depression and to reduce the devastating impact this disease has when left untreated.

The Men and Depression Awareness Project includes an educational kit containing print brochures and an awareness poster to be distributed to 5,000 college and university health centers across the country. Messages were developed to increase awareness of the symptoms of depression, reduce the stigma that prevents men from seeking help, and provide tips for family and friends. In addition, a depression screening form was created for the DBSA Web site at<www.DBSAlliance.org>.

The foundation is APA's charitable arm. To obtain more information about the foundation or to make a contribution, please visit<www.PsychFoundation.org>.
