Integrating mental health into global development initiatives.

Good Mental Health Unlocks Human Potential

Depression is a mental illness that affects all areas of life. When left undetected and untreated, depression can prevent individuals from taking advantage of the healthcare, education, and livelihood opportunities that help them reach their full potential. This has enormous consequences for development efforts across Africa, where an estimated 100 million people live with depression, and 85% have no access to effective treatment.

Partnering with StrongMinds

StrongMinds can partner with your organization to integrate our depression treatment model into your existing programs to enhance outcomes for your target beneficiaries.

StrongMinds provides technical assistance, on-site supervision, and support to build your capacity to treat depression among your target beneficiaries. This multistep process includes detailed program planning, start-up tools, in-depth training, and ongoing staff support.

The training and handover process takes place over the course of about one year of on-site technical assistance. We continue to provide periodic quality assurance audits, refresher trainings, and remote support, as well as on-going access to current tools and best practices. The ultimate goal is for the partner to build and retain mental health treatment capacity to the highest standards.

We are the only organization offering a capacity-building approach to help NGOs and government agencies address pressing mental health issues.
