About this website

Manosamajik Suswasthya (Eng. Psychosocial Well-being) website has been developed by Transcultural Psychosocial Organisation Nepal (TPO Nepal) with the support of Combating Trafficking in Persons Project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by The Asia Foundation - Nepal. The website is based on the training manuals and study materials published by TPO Nepal. The goal of this website is to develop a joint forum which can be a reliable source on psychosocial help in Nepal. The materials published in this website can be used and exchanged by people in need free of charge. Its primary objective is to assist the people at large.

The advice and methods mentioned here are created in the way that the users can practice them by themselves. To achieve the best results, they should be followed sincerely. If no positive changes occur, we advise to contact a community psychosocial worker, a psychosocial counselor, a psychologist or a psychiatrist. For more information please contact TPO Nepal.
