Marketing Text The needs analysis survey was carried out with members of the target groups for each of the three settings. The results enabled the identification of the most important issues which should be addressed by the training; the areas where knowledge and skills have been reported as lacking; the similarities across settings which will help guide the development of generic MHP modules. The results have enabled identification of the most appropriate topics to be incorporated in the setting-specific and generic modules of the face-to-face and e-learning training courses. This allowed the project to address the more specific training needs of the target groups, in much finer detail.
Description This document is a report of the Needs analysis carried out for the project. The report provides a thorough review of existing mental health promotion training courses, literature available on the subject and presents the results of the needs analysis survey completed by target group professionals from each of the three settings. The results of the needs analysis survey were analysed both qualitatively and quantitatively using SPSS. For each setting the training needs were identified, with reference to the most important areas relating to MHP and also where knowledge and skills were lacking. Similarities and differences across settings were also discussed, including preferred training content and course duration. Logic models were developed in order to demonstrate the possible contents of each training programme. Additionally, Training Programme Specification (TPS) diagrams are also presented which further assisted in directing the training courses in terms of content and overall objectives.
