The Depression Grand Challenge (DGC) is building an advisory cabinet of thought leaders from diverse backgrounds and sectors to develop a strategy to defeat the stigma associated with depression. Ideal nominees are passionate about shifting how society understands, reacts to, and perceives depression, the world’s most common mental health issue. While the Cabinet will set its own direction, anticipated deliverables include creating clear narratives, building targeted campaigns/partnerships and engaging influencers who can shift culture. This Cabinet will have connections to but be independent of an academic workgroup of experts who study stigma.
