The Mental Health Facilitator training focuses on preparing individuals for a variety of basic mental health situations in a multicultural and multidisciplinary context. For this reason, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses and members of related professions helped to design the program.
Training providers start with the core curriculum—a compilation of mental health knowledge and skills accepted around the world—and then modify and add content, including role-playing and other class activities, to fit local norms. This helps assure that anyone with MHF training can understand problems and recommend solutions in a realistic local context.
