In Nepal, mental health policies and plans are in place, but implementation is lacking. Proper implementation requires governance structures and dedicated individuals. Recently, a new national mental health strategy and action plan has been approved, but it remains to be seen if it will be effectively implemented. The limited progress made in clinical governance of mental health is due to limited capacity for monitoring and standardization of drug prescription practices. Good governance is necessary for ensuring effective health care delivery and policy implementation in the field of mental health. NGOs and the private sector could play an important role in establishing a central coordination unit for mental health.

The preliminary mapping aims to identify key actors providing support, specifically in mental health and psychosocial support, to survivors of gender-based violence (GBV) in Nepal. The study has two main objectives: i) To identify the key actors providing support particularly in Mental Health and Psychosocial Support to GBV survivors in Nepal. ii) To identify strategic interventions and advocate for replication. The results of this mapping will be used to identify the current resources and services available for GBV survivors and to identify areas where additional support is needed.
