Depression is a common—though often underdiagnosed and undertreated— illness of the brain. An estimated 21 million, or 1 in 7 adults, in the U.S. suffer from some form of the disorder each year, more than coronary heart disease and cancer combined. Depression does not discriminate. It affects people of all ages, races and socioeconomic status. Individuals with depression and the loved ones who support them have suffered without help or hope for too long.
Anxiety vs. Anxiety Disorder
Anxiety is a normal human emotion that everyone experiences at times. Many people feel anxious, or nervous, when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. Anxiety disorders, however, are different. They can cause such distress that it interferes with a person's ability to lead a normal life.

ReachOut.com ReachOut’s story started on the other side of the world—in Australia back in 1992, when a cousin of Jack Heath, founder of Inspire, took his life. When trying to make sense of it, Jack had a vision that young people could be connected with comprehensive resources and support through the media they use. With this support, lives could be saved and young people’s mental health and well-being could be improved. Inspire Foundation was founded and with the then escalating rates of youth suicide, Inspire launched the ReachOut website in 1998.
