ABSTRACT
Developing countries often encounter difficulties integrating
mental health into community health care, and Indonesia is no
exception. With an estimated population of 240 million, but with
very limited human resources in health care, especially mental
health care, Indonesia struggles to maintain an effective mental
health program. This review describes the changing process
in Indonesian governmental policies concerning mental
health, the current status and challenges of mental health in
community health care, and suggestions toward minimizing
the problems. Suggestions include training health workers,
waging a national campaign against stigma, and develop the
mental health program accomodated with the need assessment
of the area.
Keywords: integration, mental health, community health care
