Ask A North Korean

Ask a North Korean: How do North Koreans care for their mental health?

The state views mental illness as an ideological problem, and North Koreans lack access to therapy and medical treatment

“Ask a North Korean” is an NK News series featuring interviews with North Korean defectors, most of whom left the DPRK within the last few years.

Readers may submit their questions for defectors by emailing [email protected] and including their first name and city of residence.
