VTV.vn - According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), unipolar depressive disorders is the world's third leading cause of disease in 2004 and will move into first place by 2030.

One of the most important ways to help patients with depression is to create tools to screen and identify symptoms in the early stages for appropriate treatment. Help from one's community plays a big role in this.

After many sessions of working with community members, sharing both tears and joy, women who used to have depression can now confidently stand in front of their friends and present solutions to prevent recurring depression for other women.
