Welcome to the website of AWARE

AWARE is the national depression charity for Northern Ireland.

A Derry-born charity, we now have two offices; one in Londonderry and a second office in Belfast. AWARE has an established network of 24 support groups in rural and urban areas across the country, which are run by our trained volunteers.
