Abstract

In 1981, as part of a “WHO Collaborative Study on Strategies for Extending Mental Health Care”1,5 we had the opportunity of training primary health workers (PHW) in mental health. The majority of these PHW were already receiving some kind of in-service training in psychological aspects of the patients they were daily seeing. The origin of this in service training was the high rate of psychological problems among those who attend primary health care settings, as confirmed by Climent et al.4
