HEAT (Health Education and Training) is a comprehensive education and training programme for community health workers that has been written in collaboration with African health experts, and that launched in Ethiopia in 2011.

One of the modules of this programme is a freely available package to train people in mental health and childhood developmental disorders. This package includes five short training videos (see below), modelling an Health Extension Worker (HEW) interviewing mothers of children with autism or intellectual disability to demonstrate skills in early detection, supportive counselling and problem solving, and a more general mental health training handbook
