Earthquake-affected populations in Rasuwa, Nuwakot, and Makwanpur have elevated symptoms of depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, suicidal ideation and alcohol use problems. The effects are seen relatively higher among women, individuals who were widowed, separated or divorced from their partners.
