In Iran like many developing countries, rural population is dispersed. This is a major reason of unavailablity of limited urban mental health facilities for the majority of rural dowellers. One way of overcoming this problem is "Integration of Mental health into Health Care System". Recently many efforts have been done in this direction. In the present research, by selecting of one test group and one control group, the change in attitude of 34 Behvarzes and 237 rural dwellers was tested and again retested following the integration of Mental Health into the PHC. The hypothesis was that training of Behvarzes and programme implementation would improve attitude in both groups. The instruments of this study included two attitude questionnaire, one for Behvarzes and one for ordinar y rural dwellers. The questionnaire was tested for face and content validity. Data were analizes by using independent t-test and comparison of averages. The results showed improvement in the attitudes of general population and Behvarzes. The Behvarzes were also able to diagnose 154 cases with mental health problem from the population and refered them to the GPs.
