Mental Health

Globally mental health problems are a serious public health concern. Currently four out of five people with severe mental illness in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC) receive no effective treatment. There is an urgent need to address this enormous treatment gap.

Nepal’s mental health policy was formulated in 1996. Key components of the policy include:

  1. To ensure the availability and accessibility of minimum mental health services for all the population of Nepal;
  2. To prepare human resources in the area of mental health;
  3. To protect the fundamental human rights of the mentally ill; and
  4. To improve awareness about mental health.
