This research report highlights the prevalence of depression symptoms in women. Through women’s stories, we learn of the unceasing challenges they face daily, leading to chronic stress, and making them vulnerable to anxiety and depression.
Worse still, women talk about the lack of appropriate mental health support. It is a looming crisis as women cave into clinical depression taking them to the point of no return. This report is a cry for help, for mental health services and interventions that are relevant, accessible, and reflect understanding and compassion for their mental ill health as soon as possible.
