OUR RESULTS

Ending the Depression Epidemic in Africa

As the only organization scaling a solution to the depression epidemic in Africa, StrongMinds is laser-focused on impact.

Recovering from Depression

StrongMinds provides free, group talk therapy to people with depression across Africa. Approximately 75% of clients are depression-free after treatment.

Restoring Hope to Families

When a woman recovers from depression, her family starts to thrive. She becomes more economically productive, while her children eat more regular meals and go to school more often. For every woman who restores her mental health, four members of her household benefit.

Preventing Future Depressive Episodes

Women who complete our StrongMinds therapy groups continue to remain in touch after the conclusion of treatment. Many report that they now have someone to turn to for social and emotional support. They are also better able to recognize the signs of depression in themselves and others and deploy the emotional tools StrongMinds has taught them to prevent future depressive episodes.
