Gender-based Violence and Depression and Anxiety Symptoms among Women in Nakuru County, Kenya
Author’s Details: Dorothy Wangari Mwathi-Kenyatta

Gender based violence (GBV) is an act of directing violence to a person based on their gender. GBV can lead to physical, emotional/psychological, and sexual harm to the opposite gender. Although men can be victims of GBV, more women than men are victims of GBV. The current study investigated depression and anxiety symptoms among women who are/have experienced GBV in the metro area of Nakuru County using descriptive survey design. The study targeted all women aged 18 to 50 years in Nakuru metro area. Purposive sampling was employed and data was collected mainly from churches, markets, and institutions. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics and findings presented in table of frequencies and percentages. The findings revealed that women who are/have undergone GBV exhibit symptoms of depression and anxiety. The study recommended that the Ministry of Health in conjunction with Ministry of Gender in every county should come up with programmes that provide interventions for victims of gender based violence, especially women. The programmes should also sensitize the communities on the adverse effects of GBV in order to discourage GBV and social as well as cultural beliefs that promote GBV against women.

Author’s Details:(1)Lilian F. Wiysahnyuy,Ph.D-Higher Teacher Training College, University of Bamenda, Cameroon(2)Nji Junior Tangu-Higher Teacher Training College, University of Bamenda, Cameroon

In spite of the importance and the availability of Guidance and counselling services in the University setting, it is observed that students barely exploit these services. It is common place to find students facing problems which can easily be handled by counsellors but who end up channelling their challenges to inappropriate remedial sources. This makes one to wonder whether they are aware of the Guidance and counselling services which are provided by the university.  It is based on this reflection that this paper was designed to find out students perspectives on the role of counsellors in the University of Bamenda (UBa). Specifically the paper sought to find out whether or not students are aware of the role of counsellors in UBa, to examine the extent to which they use the services and to find out the impression students have about the role of counsellors in UBa. The descriptive survey research design was used for the study. The sample size of 250 students was selected randomly from the Faculties of Arts, Economics and Management Sciences, Law and Political Science, and the Faculty of Science. After analysing the data using descriptive and inferential statistics, the findings revealed that an overwhelming majority of the students were not aware of the role of counsellors in UBa, and most of the students had negative impressions on the role of counsellors. It is clear that if students are not aware of the role of guidance counsellors, they will hardly go for counselling. Therefore a wider publicity on the role of counsellors has to be made in order to create awareness of the existing counselling services in UBa.
