This study outlines the Theory of Change (ToC) process across and within PRIME countries in developing draft mental health care plans. ToC workshops were conducted in each country to create a forum for knowledge exchange between researchers and other stakeholders. Theory of Change provides a structured and participatory approach which can be used to guide the design of contextually relevant complex mental health interventions.
