From the Cambodia chapter, readers will learn about mental health development in this country after four decades of civil war from 1960 to 1998. Western-style mental health services were started in the 1990s through international aid. A mental health service has been set up in many general hospitals, together with mental health units in health centres. Anxiety and depression are the main psychiatric conditions found in Cambodia. Numerous challenges still exist, as in many developing countries.
