Anthem Blue Cross Foundation Supports National Campaign Focused on Depression Among Men
Date:5/20/2008

of the campaign, outreach partnerships have already been established with a number of leading national and community-based mental health organizations. On May 22nd, Mental Health America of San Diego County will be featuring Men Get Depression at their annual Healthy Minds Luncheon in the Presidential Ballroom of the US Grant Hotel. Eric Hipple, former NFL quarterback for the Detroit Lions and campaign spokesperson, will speak at the event.

A Web site was also developed to serve as a resource center and guide for community organizations, employers, churches and individuals, who can download free resources, a community toolkit and film clips at http://www.mengetdepression.com. Additionally, due to the barriers to both awareness and treatment of mental illness and mental health care within the Latino and African American communities, outreach activities will include a specific focus on reaching men and their families within these communities. To increase access and usability, all materials have been developed in English and Spanish, reviewed for low literacy and closed captioned.
