- • The evaluation of mental health promotion programmes can strengthen the evidence base of such programmes. However, mental health promotion workers often lack the skills and knowledge to conduct programme evaluations.
- • Evaluation training, consisting of interactive workshops and follow-up individual mentoring, was offered to mental health promotion workers. The programme was based on adult learning values, mental health promotion principles and guidelines for evaluation training.
- • The programme was evaluated using a questionnaire, immediately before, after and six months after training, as well as interviews with participants.
- • Evaluation of the training demonstrated significant knowledge, confidence and behaviour change.
