TPO Nepal, in collaboration with District Public Health Office (DPHO) has been implementing PRIME in the entire Chitwan district where all primary health care workers and Female Community Health Volunteers (FCHVs) are trained on mental health care. Mental health services available in the primary health care clinics included screening and diagnosis of priority mental disorders, basic psychosocial support, advanced psychosocial counseling, psychotropic treatment and continued care. In the community, FCHVs are trained in detection and referral of people with mental health problems and home base care. The team visited four health facilities in both implementation and scale up sites. The team was divided into two groups; the first group visited Gitanagar and Jagatpur health posts while the second group visited Jutpani PHC and Jirauna Urban Health Unit (UHC).
On visiting health facilities, the team interacted with health post in-charges, other trained health workers, and Female Community Health Volunteers (FCHVs). They also interacted with people receiving mental health services from these health facilities. The health facility in-charges from all four health facilities presented an overall status of mental health services, types of mental health services available, and challenges and difficulties. The team also observed mental health reporting systems,availability of psychotropic medicine, treatment protocols and guidelines in the health facilities.
The FCHVs briefly shared how they detect people with mental health problems in the community by using the Community Informant Detection Tool (CIDT). The senior level officials also asked FCHVs about the challenges and difficulties they are facing while referring people for treatment and providing Home Base Care (HBC).
