OUR RESULTS

Stopping the Depression Epidemic in Africa

As the only social enterprise focused on scaling a solution to the depression epidemic on the subcontinent, StrongMinds is laser-focused on impact.

Recovering from Depression

Since starting fieldwork in 2014, StrongMinds has provided group talk therapy to more than 95,000 women and adolescents in Uganda and Zambia. More than 80% of clients are depression-free at the conclusion of treatment, and those results are sustained six months post-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, five 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.
