This full version of a previous feature goes into detail about CHWs and mental health. CHWs encounter psychosocial issues on a daily basis, but their training does not cover this area. This paper discusses the role CHWs can potentially fill in regards to mental health care, the evidence showing the effectiveness of such care, and World Vision’s approach to training CHWs in mental health care issues.
