Work Package 4

Community Identification, referral, and outcome assessment of SMI cases

Our aim for this WP is to determine whether our interventions lead to an increase in numbers of people with SMIs accessing biomedical care.

We will further ascertain these individuals’ initial and follow-up mental health status and quality of life, the reduction achieved in their carers’ burdens, and changes in community attitudes and help seeking for SMIs. We will collect data pre-intervention to identify the number of cases attending mental health services from the study site and their basic clinical and socio-demographic characteristics.

Data collection systems will be in place pre-intervention, and successive patients identified will be enrolled over 12 months into the study where baseline/intake and follow-up assessments will be conducted.
