The growing population of immigrants and refugees in the United States increases the need for culturally sensitive and appropriate mental health care. The purpose of this research project is to explore the attitudes and perceptions of mental disorders among individuals from Nepal who reside in the United States. Using a qualitative design, data was collected through an online survey. Thirty respondents completed the online survey. Data was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics to investigate the relationship between the participant’s level of education, their beliefs and perceptions about mental disorders and the participants’ length of stay in the United States. The findings showed no statistically significant relationship existed between these variables for the 30 participants who completed the survey.
