Peace through mental health

Mental and psychological health is essential to overall wellbeing and physical health cannot be achieved without a healthy mental state. Mental health is becoming increasingly recognized as a crucial part of global development, as seen in its inclusion in the Sustainable Development Goals. Nepal still faces a lack of open discussion on mental health and a high prevalence of mental disorders, especially among women who are vulnerable to domestic abuse. The influence of violence on attempted and committed suicide is well-documented and 80% of women in Nepal reported suffering from domestic violence. There is a culture of silence surrounding abuse and mental health issues, leading to underreporting and stigmatization. Tarangini is working to address these issues by providing self-care sessions and training to women's human rights defenders. Self-care and loving oneself should be a priority for individuals, as health and well-being cannot be achieved without physical, mental, and emotional health.
