Bangladesh, a country of over 165 million of people and according to a joint research conducted by WHO & Ministry of Health & Family Welfare of Bangladesh about 16.1% of the adult population in the country are suffering from mental disorders. World Health Organization (WHO) generated a report stating every 40 seconds someone is committing suicide out of mental disorder. The scenario in Bangladesh dictates a 10,000-suicide number per year ranking suicide in the 10th position as a cause of death. But unfortunately, there is no sufficient number of mental expert to serve the people who are mentally suffering.
