Globally 350 million people suffer from depression, with rates of depression across the continent of Africa at 100,000,000 with 66,000,000 of this being women in Africa.  All this is higher than those to be found in Europe or the United States of America. There is very little or no access to effective treatment or any treatment at all. The World Bank considers depression to be the “greatest thief of productive economic life” on the continent of Africa.

Depression is often triggered by an accumulation of stress, that goes untreated. A workplace is a place where ongoing stress is generated daily. Although work-related stress is not an illness the psychological impact does make employees more vulnerable to depression, especially women as reflected in the figures below above.

Women in the workplace, are three times more vulnerable to depression. Considering women contribute more than 50% of the workforce, there is a case for supporting women’s mental wellness by providing them with sustainable resilience skills and creating an environment that will enable women to be productive, without acquiring mental ill health.
