Short courses offer targeted training with follow-up for specific groups, such as health planners and development workers, based on identified needs. This might include, for example, a 2-week introductory course on mental health service planning for key provincial health planners. The outcome of such a course would be to equip provincial health planners to conduct a situation analysis of current mental health service provision; a needs assessment for mental health services in the population; set appropriate targets for service development, and evaluate the implementation of the service plan. Short courses are followed up with monitoring, support and supervision of the trainees. Should you be interested in developing a short course for your institution, please contact us.
