The Royal College of Psychiatrists in association with the Royal College of General Practitioners and other relevant organisations launched the Defeat Depression campaign in January 1992. The objectives of the campaign are to reduce the stigma associated with depression, to assist general practitioners and other health care professionals in the recognition and treatment of depressive illness, and to increase public awareness of the extent and treatability of depression.
