The motto of the charity group is “We are here to help past and present employees of the insurance industry in their time of need.”

Annali-Joy Thornicroft, chief executive of The Insurance Charities, accompanied Depression Alliance staff and supporters to meet Mrs Cameron at a reception.

Friends in Need was set up with a clear aim – to end the loneliness and isolation that comes with depression. It describes itself as a supportive community where people who have been affected by depression can connect with others online, through the Friends in Need website, and through group events, activities and meetings.
