Only 400 more, at one psychiatrists per 100,000 of the population and mostly caring for addicts.  

Not to worry, this is totally wrong. I will fix it.

For the next 5 years Thailand will need 4 000 psychiatrists per annum.

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul estimates that the number of drug addicts who will need psychiatric counselling at about 1.9 million each year

That would mean about 4% of the adult population are currently drug addicts ? Thats insane (bad choice words) Any people here want to legalise weed smoking ? Going to need more head shrinks when the populations starts puffing

If you are an Aussie, just man up. Remember Fraser "life was not meant to be easy".

Well done to the ever insightful Anutin for stigmatizing mental heath issues with connections to drug use. Way to go in not acknowledging and managing a problem that impacts a significant amount of non-drug users.

I think their first priority should be to build up capabilities to take severe sufferers into care. There are a lot of roaming folks with severe mental health issues who are currently “managed”within communities with mixed and sometimes very negative outcomes.

That, and getting the mental health issue discussed in a sensible way…

According to the ministry’s health records, more than 2.5 million people sought psychiatric counselling in the 2022 fiscal year, which ended on October 31st.

That's only the ones who sought counselling, how many nut-jobs are walking around without treatment?

Western countries just in the past few years have been trying to make it acceptable to seek mental care.  Mass shootings and celebrites/atheletes coming about about their issues have helped.

Thailand is way behind and with a ¨save face¨ culture it will be difficult to breach the full severity of the problems here.  

Suicides have been on the rise here over the past several years:

According to an investigation video by CNA Insider, there is at least 1 suicide attempt every 10 minutes in Thailand. One major reason for this is the lack of mental health support, especially when it comes to suicidal issues. While there are suicide hotlines in the country, it’s not usually easy to get through and speak to a provider.

400 to brainwash people  who are unsatisfied with the current situation. 400 to tell how good this country is for them and how satisfied they have to be with their low income, decling touristindustry, deaths and injured in the traffic and the corrupt government and RTP....and the lack for going forward but stay in the old 19th century culture
