AWARE is the national depression charity for Northern Ireland.

A Derry-born charity, we now have two offices; one in Londonderry and a second office in Belfast. AWARE has an established network of 24 support groups in rural and urban areas across the country, which are run by our trained volunteers. Support groups welcome people with depression and bipolar disorder as well as carers for people with the illness.
