With gratitude to you and 57 other advocates, The UCLA Depression Grand Challenge team is proud to share the success of our 2nd annual UCLA Spark campaign, aimed at raising much-needed resources for the Screening and Treatment for Anxiety and Depression (STAND) Program. In 44 days, the community came together to raise $36,941, passing our fundraising goal and unlocking a $25,000 match, raising a total of $61,941 for the STAND Program.
This collective generosity is helping to identify at-risk students, prevent suicide, and understand the biological causes of depression all while enabling UCLA students to continue to receive free mental health screening, assessment, and personalized treatment.
Thank you, again, for supporting the DGC’s mission to reduce the global burden of depression. We look forward to keeping you informed of our progress.
In other news, DGC faculty, a member of the DGC Leadership Council, and a STAND Program Certified Resilience Peer recently participated in a TEDxUCLA Salon focused on depression. Click here to watch the sold out program.
