StrongMinds empowers impoverished African women by treating depression at scale and enables these women and their families to lead more healthy, productive, and satisfying lives.
StrongMinds is a social enterprise founded in early 2013 that provides life-changing mental health services to impoverished African women. Since many African women cannot even begin to tackle issues like poverty and economic development until they overcome depression, StrongMinds has initially focused on treating women who suffer from this pervasive and debilitating mental illness. By adapting a proven therapeutic model, StrongMinds is the only organization scaling a cost-effective solution to the depression epidemic in Africa. We are guided by an ambitious and unique goal of treating two million depressed African women by 2025—enabling these women and their families to lead more healthy, productive and satisfying lives. StrongMinds presently operates in Uganda, a post-conflict and highly impoverished country, where 20-25% of women suffers from depression.
