Why Depression in Africa?

Depression is the leading cause of disability globally. More than 25% African women are suffering from depression and 85% have no access to mental health treatment. StrongMinds is the only organization focused on scaling a solution to the depression epidemic in Africa through its proven group talk therapy programs. Depression affects every aspect of a woman’s life – from her own physical health to her family’s eating habits, to her ability to concentrate, and to save money for the future.
