National Survey on Psychological Disorders


The Health Ministry has decided to conduct an island-wide national survey regarding psychological disorders and the mentally ill.


After a study on the mentally ill conducted by the World Health Organization, no survey has been conducted in Sri Lanka in an island-wide scale.


The Director of Mental Health Unit Doctor Rasanjali Hettiarachchi stated that a pilot project will be implemented focusing on Colombo District, while a national survey will be conducted in 2015.
