Primary Health Organisations: 21 Service development toolkit for mental health services in primary health care Provider Barriers in service providers that discourage people from accessing mental health care, include: stigma expressed through staff prejudices and stereotypes about people with experience of mental illness inadequate provider behaviour that deters a person from presenting an emotional issue a lack of recognition of a mental health service need that may coexist with other conditions a lack of cultural knowledge and accessibility such as language, for example, staff may misread cultural behaviours as rude, disrespectful or signs of illness not knowing what to do when a person’s mental health service need is identified the provision of ineffective interventions the provision of only a limited range of interventions (for example, access to psychological therapists but not traditional healers) inadequate resources to assist people for whom English is a second language a lack of knowledge or experience in dealing with mental health issues the marginalisation of mental health services when they exist as part of a larger range of services being in a location that is difficult to reach, for example not close to bus stops, trains or parking.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
