ADAA Stands Against Racism

June 4, 2020

The Anxiety and Depression Association of America’s (ADAA) mission is more critical than ever. Since ADAA’s founding 40 years ago, we have been committed to ensuring that everyone who struggles with an anxiety disorder, depression or PTSD can obtain the resources they need to live healthier and more productive lives. 
Over the last few months, we have seen that many of our poorest neighborhoods and communities of color have suffered disproportionately from the spread of COVID-19. Many of these same marginalized communities are also grappling with economic uncertainty, and now with the recent killing of George Floyd following so many other killings of African Americans, with increased mental health issues. ADAA’s mental health experts understand that exposure to these pervasive racial traumas and stressors are detrimental to one’s mental health. We also know that many people of color who suffer from mental health issues also experience less access to care and services.  Read the full statement here.

ADAA’s Board of Directors extends a heartfelt thank you to all ADAA members and supporters for their extraordinary work and effort during the last few months. We invite you to watch this special message of thanks.  A big part of ADAA’s mission has always been to provide access to evidence-based research and treatment information to the public at no cost. Now more than ever, as COVID-19 takes a toll on the world’s mental health, these resources are critical.  ADAA members have lent their expertise in a huge way by hosting webinars, authoring blog posts, and providing useful tips and information in numerous media placements. ADAA is extremely grateful for our members commitment to and support of our mission.
