Careers with the highest depression rate in Kenya

Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and a general loss of interest. Depression is also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression and it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. This are the careers in Kenya that have the most depressed people. Bar attendants & Commercial S** workers are perhaps the most depressing. Take an example of a commercial sex worker who goes out not knowing whether she will come back home infected or not. Bar attendants on the other side deal with a rowdy kind, customers who are drunk and uncooperative and may even refuse to pay bills and leave the whole load to the attendants.

Social workers work with people who are so needy in the society and it needs the maximum sacrifice to be a social worker. Social workers deal with drug addicts, broken families, depressed children, and adults abused children, suicide survivors, and many more traumatizing cases. What they do daily as a ‘job’ may be harmful as what they see while at the field makes them depressed.   Teachers: If children/students from different backgrounds converged in a class, there are some who are naughty, slow learners, bright and those whose educational level is hard to gauge and you are supposed to make them be at the same level. There is also pressure from parents and the school who want you to meet certain standards like the class performance and individual performance and mark you-you are not the one sitting for exams. Salespeople work is very depressing as you work on commission. Salespeople have the uncertainty of income and their next pay, there is also a lot of pressure for good results, long working hours and even separation from family for long because only your hard work and prowess in the field will sort you out. This is no random job for the fainthearted.   Administrative Support Staff: This kind of person receives orders from all directions and has very limited time to execute the orders and at the end of the day, nobody appreciates them.
