Fighting depression together

Women in Uganda are learning how to treat their neighbours for depression.

Women in Uganda are learning how to treat their neighbours for depression. That’s because there aren’t enough resources for professional care, especially for people from poor backgrounds.

An organisation called StrongMinds sets up group therapy sessions across the country, and when clients come out of depression, some are trained to run courses for other women.

People Fixing the World visits a session in Kampala to see how it works and meet women whose lives have changed dramatically.
