Two clinical supervisors supported the implementation of Group Problem Management Plus (PM+) in feasibility, acceptability and effectiveness trials in Nepal. In this personal reflection, they share lessons learned and experiences on the importance of cultural adaptation and supervision in implementing an intervention delivered by lay community workers. They outline how they made these adaptations and what they learned from doing trials in a new setting such as Nepal. Interventions such as PM+ are simple and effective in any community and work even better in communities affected with adversities. The personal reflection discusses best practices for training, the challenges faced, and the impact that the project had on the clinical supervisors and the Group PM+ facilitators.
