Mental Health is a Human Right

Over 301,000 lives transformed. 80% remain depression-free 6 months later. Join StrongMinds in Empowering Women & Adolescents.

An investment in mental health is an investment in human potential. When a person recovers from depression, they can take better advantage of educational and employment opportunities, and participate more fully in family and community life. 

Now that Given has recovered from depression, she says she has “the courage to overcome any situation that comes [her] way.” After completing StrongMinds therapy, she now runs a small business selling pots alongside her family, enabling her to earn a living and provide for her children. She also volunteers as a StrongMinds peer facilitator in her community in Lusaka, Zambia. She wants to show others with depression that the right support makes recovery possible.
