Change the Face of Depression (CTFOD) is centered on the elements of self-care; raising awareness of its importance to the teachings of implementing it.
Depression spares no walk of life. It doesn't matter the race nor the dynamics of the people it affects.
As a foundation, we are a source of resources to those that are looking to over come depression.
To impact countless lives by encouraging their path to regain a sense of their own self-worth.
There are several ways your donation will be used through the foundation and throughout the community.
The Self-Care Kit-
When one suffers from depression, self care is the first thing to go. In efforts to boost recovery we have organized a variety of Self-Care Kits. The kits include, but are not limited to, the essentials of hygiene needed to start over (i.e. soap, shampoo, deodorant, etc.) leading up to the products used to seek and obtain successful employment (i.e. groom, hygiene essentials, interview attire, etc.).
The kits range in detail of their recipient to encompass their individual basic needs are met.
We feel the quality and efficiency will be an asset to the recipients. Not only are they practical for many purposes, they are effective and will encourage the recipient an easier way to keep clean. They are also convenient and easy to travel with.
We commemorate making it through another week by challenging a Wellness Wednesday give-a-way! Wellness Wednesdays change weekly in efforts to encourage self care by embracing the challenge to try something new. May it be gifting a donation of products or services to enhance the accountability of hygiene or a new experience to brave the isolation depression weighs on one's wellbeing. Wellness Wednesdays are made to salute the finish line of another success.

I feel, honestly, if this was something offered to me during my darkest days of depression, it would have made a great impact on my recovery. Something so simple, yet so important.
A chance at a reset. A beautiful and powerful opportunity for a vital, yet so often complacent, reminder of one's worth.
