Why we invest

Depression is currently the number one cause of disability in the world. An African woman suffering from depression makes less money, and her physical health – and the health of her children – is worse. StrongMinds tackles depression with a proven intervention in Uganda. They use a proven 12-week group talk-therapy approach to treat women and prevent future episodes of depression. In 2014, StrongMinds replicated the outstanding impact of the academic study that inspired its launch: 94% of women were free of depression symptoms at the end of their program. This low-cost, easy-to-replicate model holds promise to restore many women and their families to healthy, productive and satisfying lives.
