"The mission of TADS is to raise awareness about mental health issues in our society"

TADS is a group of people in and around Groton, Massachusetts who actively advocate for mental wellness for young people. The mission of TADS is to raise awareness about mental health issues in our society, especially depression and anxiety, and in so doing, help to prevent suicide.

Inspired by our different faiths and our common values, we believe education is the key to prevention and that the best way to prevent suicide is through the early recognition and treatment of depression and other psychiatric illnesses.  Therefore, TADS concentrates its efforts on advocacy, funding for school-based suicide prevention and mental health education programs, and enabling community-based services.

About TADS

Teenage Anxiety & Depression Solutions (TADS) is a 501c3 non-profit organization that focuses on mental health issues, especially with regards to helping parents who have children with mental health needs.  TADS has a three-pronged mission:

  • To raise awareness of mental health issues,
  • To supply education about mental health issues, and
  • To provide access to care for those in need of mental health services.

Moreover, we believe that this mission should be accomplished with “boots on the ground.”  That is, we look for opportunities to bring resources directly to those in need.
