About Comprehensive Community Mental Health Programme

In Nigeria’s Benue State, services for mental and neurological disorders have historically been available through one tertiary facility and a small number of heavily overburdened community rehabilitation facilities run by local faith-based organisations. The Benue State Comprehensive Community Mental Health Programme (CCMHP) was initiated in 2011 as a public-private partnership to scale up services in primary care. Trained community psychiatric nurses (CPNs) operate outpatient clinics in special primary care facilities known as Comprehensive Health Centres, which offer an enhanced package of health services. CPNs also conduct outreach visits to patients’ homes, raise awareness in communities, and support local self-help groups. Community health extension workers (CHEWs) at other primary health care facilities are trained in World Health Organisation mental health Gap Action Programme (mhGAP) intervention guidelines for Nigeria, and are also equipped to detect, manage and treat cases.
