Clinical Trial Summary

Aims: 1. To describe the process of developing a feasible district mental healthcare plan (MHCP) for depression, self-harm and suicide prevention, and 2. To describe its enabling intervention packages and components to be delivered at the Basic Health Units in Thatta district. The proposed study will be a pilot implementation with nested qualitative component. The study will also involve situational analysis for proposed study site and Theory of Change workshops with key stakeholders. This study is a replication of the methods used in the development of a district mental healthcare plan in Uganda (Kigozi et al., 2016).

Clinical Trial Description

Mental neurological and substance use (MNS) disorders contribute significantly to global burden of disease. The WHO Mental Health Action Programme (MhGAP) taking a life course approach has developed an intervention guide to scale up services in low and middle income countries (LMICs) focusing on priority mental health conditions in adults and older adults. The gap between the individuals in need of mental health interventions and those who actually receive such care remains very large. To reduce the treatment gap, the WHO Mental Health Action Plan (WHO, 2017) strongly recommended assessment, diagnosis and treatment of MNS in community settings and primary healthcare (PHC). Central to this agenda is the WHO Mental Health Gap Action Programme (mhGAP) and intervention guide (IG) (WHO, 2010) which is an evidence based tool. The proposed project aims to integrate the adapted WHO-mhGap-IG for depression, self-harm and suicide prevention into the community and primary settings in Thatta (situated in the province of Sindh, Pakistan). Depression and self-harm are selected priority conditions for the proposed study. In order to collect information and detailed cross-sectional data on health and factors that can influence health of Thatta district, a situational analysis tool will be used. Both one to one in-depth interviews as well as focus groups will be conducted with stakeholders to explore possible barriers and facilitators of testing the feasibility of adapted mhGap-IG for depression and self-harm in Thatta. Pilot study will be conducted using the mhGAP-Intervention Guide (mhGAP-IG) (two modules: Depression, self harm and suicide prevention) ;
