The Best Counselling Centres in Kenya


Speaking out when one is depressed is difficult and especially for men. As a result, many run into depression, and some end up committing suicide. According to the WHO Report in 2014, Kenya was ranked position four in Africa, with 1.9 million people suffering from depression. This has made both public and private sectors come up with counselling centres to help the ailing.

Mental disorder issues in Kenya are spiking and especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Kenya Mental Health Policy (2015-2030). It is estimated that out of 4 Kenyans, at least 1 has a mental illness at one point in life. Therefore, counselling centres have a significant role to play in our societies.
