Project description

The integration of mental health care is under-researched, particularly in low-to-middle-income settings. The study will aim to investigate the influences of power structures on the implementation of mental health integration in South Africa. Social network analysis and in-depth interviews will be combined to examine the role of power in relationships between stakeholders involved in integration processes.
