To help support the growing number of people affected by depression, EmpowHER, an award-winning social health company for women, now offers a free online Depression Resource Center. The resource center provides easy access to the latest news, expert advice and community groups concerned with preventing, treating and coping with depression.

EmpowHER's Depression Resource Center offers women the information they need to break free from the chains of depression. Here, women can learn from expert advice, hear stories from other women affected by the disease and discover ways to take control of their own mental health.

"Depression is an all-too-common disease here in America," says EmpowHER Founder, Chairperson and CEO Michelle King Robson. "Tragically, many women do not seek treatment because they are concerned with the stigma associated with mental illness, or, they simply elect to 'tough it out,' dismissing their symptoms as part of everyday life. The fact of the matter is that no woman should ever feel alone or helpless while struggling with this condition. To help women understand, treat and cope with depression, EmpowHER now offers a resource rich with information and support designed to help women better take control of their health and wellness."
