Abstract

Training in mental health is conducted for the peripheral health workers of Dangahwa under the District Mental Health Programme. It enhances their learning and inculcates a favorable attitude towards mental health issues. A focus-group discussion was carried out with the workers within 6 months of their training. The discussion revealed important factors that facilitated or hindered their work at the grass-root level, while they tried to put the learning into practice. The lesson learnt was that feedback from the community level was of crucial importance in modifying the training programme to make it more effective in yielding results.


Key words: mental health training, peripheral health workers, feedback
