WHO mhGAP toolkit for community providers launched
The mhGAP community toolkit: field test version is an integral part of WHO’s Mental Health Gap Action Programme (mhGAP), and aims at scaling up services for people with mental health conditions to achieve universal health coverage.
Communities contain a wide range of resources that can be used to promote mental health, prevent mental health conditions and support care and recovery of people with mental health conditions.
The mhGAP Community Toolkit is now available for field testing. Sections include an informational guide for programme managers and a practical manual for anyone wishing to promote and address mental health in their community.
The toolkit provides guidance for programme managers on how to identify local mental health needs and tailor community services to match these needs. It offers practical information and necessary tools for community providers to promote mental health, prevent mental health conditions and expand access to mental health services.
