About the Depression Grand Challenge
STAND was developed under the UCLA Depression Grand Challenge (DGC) treatment arm. In 2015, UCLA launched the DGC to cut the global burden of depression in half by 2050. Our efforts are organized around research objectives and service and dissemination objectives. Our work with STAND crosses both of these types of objectives.
