MHP Salud Resource Portfolio:
Resources and Reference Materials on Mental Health
Community Health Workers are well-situated to address mental health concerns in undeserved communities. They act as a bridge between affected individuals and available resources. Community Health Workers combat stigma by educating and conducting outreach on mental health within the community. They are an excellent addition to healthcare teams that want to improve the mental health outcomes of traditionally hard-to-reach communities. These resources provide information and tools to be used by Community Health Workers to address mental health in their own communities. All resources are available for free and licensed to be distributed for educational use.
This 71-page English-language Program Manual is designed to walk Community Health Workers or Promotores(as) de Salud through strengthening knowledge about mental health issues and coping mechanisms and utilizing resources to help those suffering from mental health issues access the services available to them in their community.
The Salud Para Todos Implementation Guide is a comprehensive tool for Promotores de Salud (Community Health Workers), or other peer educators, to prepare and implement community education sessions on mental health topics. The Implementation Guide provides the information, session plans, and other materials needed to facilitate educational sessions the topics of mental health, stress, domestic violence, substance abuse, and the relationship between chronic disease and mental health.
