European Alliance Against Depression

GAMIAN-Europe stands for Global Alliance of Mental Illness Advocacy Networks-Europe. As the name suggests, we are a “patient driven” federation of national organizations across Europe. These Organisations support people affected by a mental illness. Within the federation we cover the whole spectrum of psychiatric conditions as well as offering support to careers and other family members. Currently, there are some seventy members of GAMIAN-Europe from thirty-one Europe countries, stretching from Iceland in the West to Russia in the East, and from Finland in the North to Malta and Cyprus in the South. We also have associate members from other continents (Africa, North and South America). Some of the national organizations are disease specific; for example, they focus solely on depression, bipolar disorder or anxiety, whilst others are umbrella organizations in their own country covering the whole range of psychiatric conditions.
