1. Topic: Mental health in South Korea (दक्षिण कोरिया में मानसिक स्वास्थ्य)    

2. Writer: WBT3 (Hindi Team: Bisakha Roy Choudhury, Ritoja Paul, Shirsha Singh)

3. Short Explanation: We created a Wikipedia page on 'Mental health in South Korea' in Hindi. Mental health issues are prevalent in South Korea, with the highest suicide rate in the OECD and the highest rate of hospitalizations for mental illness among OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) countries. South Korea has state-funded mental health services, the majority of which are inpatient hospital facilities, but they are largely underfunded and underutilized. Despite the prevalence of mental illness, social stigma remains prevalent throughout the South Korean population, which discourages sufferers from seeking treatment. Mental illness, while present across all demographic groups, is most common among the elderly and adolescents in South Korea.
