Kenya has been ranked among the top 10 countries in Africa with most depression cases.

According to World Health Organisation (WHO), the number of people living with depression and dying from depression in Kenya is growing year by year, with males dying from suicide out of depression being higher than the number of females, probably because females are able to speak out more.

Kenya ranks number six in depression cases in Africa.

Depression in the country has been linked to domestic violence, drug abuse, unemployment and serious financial constraints in the country.

The number of psychiatrists in the country is set to be increased to curb the issue of increasing suicide cases caused by depression.
