Sri Lanka is a developing country situated in the Indian ocean with a population of about 18.5 million. Its education and health care services are free in the state sector. Psychiatric services are mainly confined to the units in the general hospitals and two large mental hospitals situated in Angoda and Mulleriyawa (suburbs of Colombo) at the moment. However the institutional care is gradually changing and many professionals are aware of the importance of community care. There are a few reasonably organised community centres available at present.
