There is a significant need for mental health services in rural Nepal. While the prevalence of mental illness is similar between rural and urban residents, the services available are very different. Mental healthcare needs are not met in many rural communities across the country because adequate services are not present and people are bound to sociocultural stigma related to mental illness and migration. Providing mental health services can be a real challenge in rural areas. To promote awareness about mental illness The School of Psychology (TSOP), Nepal working on following components which is challenges to the provision of mental health services in rural communities.

  • Accessibility - Rural residents often travel long distances to receive services, are less likely to be insured for mental health services, and less likely to recognize the illness
  • Availability – Chronic shortages of mental health professionals exist and mental health providers are more likely to live in urban centers
  • Acceptability – The stigma of needing or receiving mental healthcare and the fewer choices of trained professionals who work in rural areas create barriers to care
