Recognizing World Health Day 2017
On April 7, 2017, we are proud to stand with the World Health Organization in recognizing World Health Day and specifically, their campaign to ensure that more people with depression both seek and have access to the help they need.
At Janssen, we believe that stigma is often the first—and sometimes an insurmountable—barrier that prevents many people from getting help. Furthermore, for too many, lack of first-hand knowledge about depression and mental illness coupled with inadequate support in coping with it is overwhelming.
On World Health Day 2017, we reflect on the need to push back against the stigma that unfairly surrounds a diagnosis of depression by showing our support, talking openly, and showing those suffering that they are not alone.
