Abstract

NBCC’s Mental Health Facilitator (MHF) program is designed to increases service accessibility by training paraprofessionals. Interviews from community stakeholders in Mexico were analyzed with Consensual Qualitative Research to explore the multi-year impacts of MHF. Positive findings corroborate prior research from other countries, however this sample highlights long-term barriers to implementation. Implications for practice and future research are discussed.
