MHMN | Mental Health Matter Nepal
The economic downturn caused by COVID-19 can increase the economic instability, health inequalities and social disparities in Nepal, which can have a huge impact on the poverty levels. While the lockdown has affected traders, especially people with small shops and those with limited sources of income, the poor, marginalized people and daily wagers are more vulnerable. Research has shown that a pandemic like COVID-19 can result in increased mental burden to marginalized or low-income people via socioeconomic disadvantage such as job insecurity, housing instability, discrimination and food insecurity. The lockdown curfews, self-isolation, social distancing and quarantine have affected the overall physical, mental, spiritual and social wellbeing of the Nepalese.
We know people want to do things that improve how they feel but don’t always know where to go or what to do. So we’ve created a platform - to help them do things with purpose and to help people discover their purpose - enabling a kinder world where social wellbeing is a priority for all.
We are a connecting platform to give mental health counseling to needed people and publish information about the Mental health status of Nepalese.
Mental Health matters Nepal depends on supporters who share our mission to enhance the mental health of all Nepalese through outreach, education, and advocacy. Our Volunteer Program was designed to create an opportunity between our supporters and MHMNepal to advance the mission of the organization as well as continue to create compassionate communities from within the organization. As a small initiative, MHMNepal depends on the support of individuals who can use their talents and efforts to help support our administrative and programmatic teams.
