Nepal-Understanding factors associated with of mental health problems in bereaved widows in Nepal

This research project is part of an ongoing collaboration with Nepali NGOs Transcultural Psychological Organization (TPO) and Women for Human Rights (WHR) to understand mental health issues among Nepali widows, a group of marginalized women within Nepali society.  TPO is a leading mental health NGO in Nepal that promotes psychosocial well-being and mental health through development of culturally-appropriate, community-based psychosocial support systems. WHR works for advocacy of human rights for single women in Nepal, especially for widows (who are marginalized group in society). Continuing ongoing work originally to explore health and human rights of these women, we seek to characterize factors associated with a variety of mental health disorders (depression, anxiety, PTSD) among widows (recruited through WHR) in order to generate information that can ultimately help target interventions.
