About StrongMinds Zambia
StrongMinds ( Zambia (SMZ) is a fast growing and dynamic social enterprise, committed to improving the Mental Health of Women in Africa by providing life-changing mental health services to impoverished African women. StrongMinds was formed in 2013 with a mission to improve the mental health of women and girls in Africa.
Depression is one of the leading causes of disability in sub-Saharan Africa, debilitating women at twice the rate of men. Conservative estimates indicate 66 million women are suffering from depression in Africa and the World Health Organization reports that 85% of these women have no access to treatment. Our ambitious goal is to provide treatment to at least 300,000 women and girls suffering with depression in the next three years.
Following 5 successful years in Uganda, StrongMinds established its operations in Zambia in 2019, and in 2022 we will treat over 20,000 through a simple, evidence-based and cost-efficient model of group talk therapy, based on group interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT-G). StrongMinds recognizes that scale will only be achieved by prioritizing the integration of its proven group interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT-G) model through partnerships. We look to do this both within Government structures such as the Ministry of Health and through medium and large international non-governmental organizations (INGOs).

Job Purpose and Context of Role
StrongMinds Zambia has grown from a small team of just 10 staff in 2019, to ending 2022 with a staff team of over 40 and 200 volunteers driving work on the ground.
