About the Campaign

Stopping Medication Can Backfire
Depending on severity of depression, anti-depressant medications may be needed for several months or even years.  Stopping medication as soon as one feels better can cause a relapse.  Always consult your doctor about changes in medication. 


“We actually went through
several medications before
we found one that was
both effective and didn’t
have side effects I couldn’t

– John Head
