Integrating Mental Health into HIV Services Standard Operating Procedures & Training Manual

Integration of mental health and HIV programs has the potential to significantly improve health outcomes for PLHIV. This training package, which is comprised of a training-of-trainers manual, an accompanying presentation, and a standard operating procedure, was developed to support a pilot project for MH and HIV integration at the community level such that health facilities, community-based organizations (CBOs), and traditional medical practitioners (TMPs) can collaborate to support MH screening and service provision for PLHIV in Zimbabwe. The training package may be used as an important step to engage HIV and MH stakeholders and train health and community workers to screen for MH problems and harmful alcohol and substance use within the community.
