Needs Assessment and Program Development for a Rural Community in India

29 July 2019


Mental health delivery in developing countries is rarely researched and, as a result, often ineffectively delivered. This study assesses the cultural appropriateness and feasibility of sending students from Pacific University’s School of Graduate Psychology to deliver mental health care in rural south India. Many factors create barriers to education and mental health care delivery in rural south India. A program was developed to address barriers to effective delivery of K-12 education using evidence-based interventions while adapting to cultural needs.
