Mental Health of Vulnerable Populations in Bangladesh

  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Mental Health in Bangladesh


Being in a vulnerable community in a resource-constrained setting is a double burden. With the limited availability of psychosocial support services in Bangladesh, people from vulnerable communities are often left without any support for their mental health conditions. This chapter presents the current state, and mental health concerns along with challenges and recommendations for providing psychosocial services to four vulnerable communities living in Bangladesh, namely, stranded Pakistanis, forcibly displaced Myanmar nationals, sexually diverse communities and climate change victims. Apart from providing clarity on mental health and associated features of these four communities, this chapter may help researchers look forward towards strategies for the improvement of services.
