AWARE is the Depression Charity for Northern Ireland.

A Derry-born charity, we now have two offices; one in Derry/Londonderry and a second office in Belfast. AWARE has an established network of 23 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. We also deliver Information Outreach sessions and attend community events to give more information about AWARE and our services.

AWARE delivers mental health and well-being programmes into communities, schools, colleges, universities and workplaces. These programmes include our suite of Mood Matters programmes, Living Life to the Full, Mental Health First Aid and Mindfulness

AWARE has a fundraising department organising fundraising events in schools and communities throughout Northern Ireland.

Our offices are closed temporarily in line with government restrictions. We have a Support Line in place for mental health support and information. The Support Line operates Mon - Fri 11am - 3pm. Please call 07548530931 or 07340488254
