CONCLUSIONS AND DISCUSSION

In the last two decades there has been a dramatic increase in private psychiatric facilities, as a general awareness of psychological problems is growing among the public. Many companies and semigovernment organizations have provided employee assistance programs in which the employer directly or by contract provides assessment, referral, and counselling services to employees to improve productivity.

There is no modern mental health policy, though awareness has reached both the government and the public sector. The legislators and the professionals in the field of mental health need to formulate an effective, comprehensive mental health policy. The most distinct change in the attitude of the Health Ministry is the trend to focus on the development of community psychiatry services rather than institutions. This definite shift in the thinking of health planners is a positive step. Hopefully, the long-awaited mental health policy will be delivered soon.
