THE STRONGMINDS UGANDA PROGRAM OVERVIEW

In early 2014, StrongMinds implemented our first group talk therapy program in Uganda, near the capital of Kampala.  The model used Group Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT-G) facilitated by lay community workers.  IPT-G is a proven technique that focuses on the interpersonal relationship of depressed group members. The therapy utilizes a structured  sessions held weekly for 12-weeks to help group members identify and manage their interpersonal difficulties, depression triggers, and ultimately reducing their symptoms of depression.  

StrongMinds Uganda is looking for 12 new Mental Health Facilitators.  Click here to learn more about the open positions.
