March against Depression in Brazil


Last month, the ‘March against Depression’ took place along Avenida Beira-Mar, a prominent public space in the city of Fortaleza, Brazil. Approximately 350 volunteers from the Beat Depression Project gathered to advocate for the value of life.

According to the Vigitel 2023 survey, published by the Ministry of Health, Fortaleza holds the highest number of diagnosed depression cases among the capital cities in Northeast Brazil.

In response to this concerning situation, the March against Depression involved banners with the aim to raise awareness and educate the public on this topic.

During the event, individuals who have overcome depression shared their personal stories, serving as proof that there is hope.

The initiative also provided a listening ear for those facing emotional or psychological challenges.

The Beat Depression Project, which currently boasts over 16,000 volunteers nationwide, consists of individuals who dedicate themselves to helping others conquer life’s challenges through faith.
