Depression, Stress and Suicide Awareness

Advocate for the fixing of a health center

According to global statistics, since 2012 the highest number of depression cases are in Africa. Low and middle-income countries account for approximately 80% of the global suicides despite it being preventable, and studies conducted in Nigeria have reported the prevalence of depression among young adults, elderly and IDPs as 25%, 26.2% and 17% respectively.

The DSSA Project seeks to help people to understand that depression is not a disease and that there’s a need to seek help and mobilize efforts when experiencing its symptoms.
