Janssen Neuroscience recently launched Depression Looks Like Me, a campaign aimed at normalizing the conversation about depression in the LGBTQ+ community and empowering people to seek the mental health care they may need.
Members of the LGBTQ+ community are disproportionately affected by depression, with research showing that LGBTQ+ adults are three times as likely to have mental health conditions as heterosexual adults and 2.5 times more likely to use mental health services than cisgender heterosexual adults.
Janssen believes everyone deserves to be seen, heard and feel empowered to ask for help. Together, we can show others what depression truly looks like. That depression looks like you, and depression looks like me too.
