Concerning the rising number of suicides in Bangladesh triggered its founders to focus on this specific sector to improve Mental Health awareness.
About 22.5 million people in Bangladesh have been found to be suffering from about 13 types of mental disorders in a government survey conducted in 2019. Besides the adult population, 13.6% of children aged between 7 and 17 were also found to be suffering from mental disorders. More alarmingly, the survey found that 92.3% of the adult respondents and 94.5% of child respondents diagnosed with different mental disorders do not receive any treatment. Although Bangladesh has been identified as a country with a vulnerable record in the mental health care sector by the international community, it spends only 0.44% of the national health budget in this sector and has 0.073 psychiatrists per 100,000 population. So, there is a critical need to cater to the mental health needs of Bangladesh and thus, it is also important to look at the current offerings in the mental health sector of Bangladesh.
