African Woman’s Depression
Globally, there are an estimated 280,000,000 people affected by depression. 100 million of which are on the continent of Africa. 66 million of these are women mainly in urban centers.
This figure is meant to double according to World Health Organization by 2030. This is the basis on which this program is built – a campaign to reduce the high numbers of women affected by depression, through individual self-care as the starting point.
Our UAWDP program is designed to help women in Africa prevent and manage depression through self-care. The program contains evidence-based strategies and practical exercises that can be easily incorporated into daily routines. It covers various topics such as boundaries, stress management, and relationships and provides guidance on how to create a personalized self-care plan.
If you’re looking for a practical and effective way to prevent and manage depression, our program is a great place to start.
Given the environment, we (women in Africa) live in and the chronic pressures that promote depression, we as women have to look after our mental health, otherwise, we shall continue to fall by the wayside. Nobody else will and should care for your mental wellness.
