What We Do

iFred is creating a shift in society’s negative perception of depression through positive imagery and branding-establishing the sunflower and color yellow as the international symbols of hope for depression. To further its mission, iFred engages with individuals and organizations to execute high-impact and effective campaigns that educate the public about support and treatment for depression.
