Fear of stigma and isolation prevent people from seeking help – The PhDepression LLC is working to change that. We aim to empower the academic community to talk openly about mental health issues in Higher Education and the structural elements that underpin them.

By sharing stories on Instagram and Twitter at @ph_d_epression of Academics overcoming mental health issues, we are building a diverse, international community that believes emotional well-being is a component of health and performance.

We want to create a world in which academics can seek out help for their mental health just as easily as they do for their physical health and educational growth. Emotional well-being should be part of being a productive member of Academia.
