The goal of the PRogramme for Improving Mental health carE (PRIME) is to
generate world-class research evidence on the implementation and scaling
up of treatment programmes for priority mental disorders in primary and
maternal health care contexts in low resource settings.
The aims of the research programme, its focus on 4 priority disorders
(alcohol abuse, depression, psychosis and epilepsy), research phases and
work plans are described in this brochure. It also outlines how the
research can impact development, the plans for translating research into
policy, partners involved in the programme, capacity building
opportunities and contacts.
