There is a strong correlation between our ability to manage and lead our organisations – on one hand – and our emotional and mental well being. Women generally experience physiological issues and challenges that their male counterparts do not experience.
When these issues are not acknowledged or distinguished whether at home or in the workplace, the potential for personal growth or career development can be limiting.
Most women suffer in silence.
That’s why we are having this online course.
Women suffer more than men
Women across cultures and around the world have an increased chance of suffering from mental illness compared to men.
Twice as many women – compared to men – are likely to suffer from depression.
One in five women is likely to suffer from mental illness.
The Covid-19 pandemic has revealed what we suspected, or what was discussed in hush tones. Most women suffer in silence.
It’s time to speak up. It’s time to slay the dragon…
African women suffer even more…
Africans – especially women – are generally averse to discussing depression or any aspect of mental health as there are many “sensitive” cultural and religious views that are at play.
As a result, it becomes even more difficult to raise the issue at home, or in the workplace.
So, most African women suffer in silence.
