"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.
