Welcome to Maryknoll Nepal

Maryknoll Nepal, established in 1991, is a non-profit, non-governmental voluntary social organization, duly registered with His Majesty’s Government and Social Welfare Council of Nepal. It was established with the main aim of releasing all the chronically mentally ill patients locked in different jails like Central Jail in Kathmandu and Dhulikhel jail in Kavre. Those patients were imprisoned for many years, solely for being mentally ill. There were no hospital facilities to accommodate them and the families did not want them back due to the chronic and relapsing nature of their illness. Psychiatric treatment within the jail does not exist. The other two aims are to provide treatment and then, to rehabilitate the mentally ill within their own families and communities.
