GlobalPost Examines Cambodia’s Mental Health Crisis

“…In 2012, in a first attempt to define the scope of Cambodia’s mental health crisis, the Royal University of Phnom Penh interviewed 2,600 people. More than 27 percent showed acute anxiety, and 16.7 percent suffered from depression. … [However,] mental health is simply not a priority… [and] only a handful of aid workers focus on mental health, making it one of the country’s most overlooked burdens…” (Hruby, 6/17).
