Zambia’s mental health care provision at district level leaves much to be desired. There is no equity of access to mental health care within the present mental health system. In addition, a cursory look shows that mental health care revealed that it is not integrated in all activities at the district level. Using participatory approaches, a number of steps were taken to develop a model for integrating mental health care into general health care in the district. An outline is given of the obstacles faced and lessons learnt.
