One of ALAS's key programs is to Train primary care physicians in diagnosing and treating basic mental disorders. We are proud to announce that our training program received a financial support of $10,000 from Stanford School of Medicine. Indeed, we applied to Stanford's Small Grant Program in order to fund our project of "Integrating Mental Health into Primary Care in Rural Guatemala Through Task Shifting to Public Health Clinic Physicians". In this program, we shall gather and train public primary care physicians in mental health care, in partnership with Stanford and local public hospitals.
It is good to highlight that the project was highly rated by Stanford's reviewers, and recognized for its salience to department missions.
