Helping Blue-Collar Workers in Trouble.
Sidney Hillman Health Center, New York, NY.
This conference examined both past and potential results of a mental health rehabilitation program serving members of a New York clothing union. This research-demonstration project, which is being conducted by the Sidney Hillman Health Center with union and management cooperation, represents an attempt to keep emotionally disturbed blue collar workers on the job. This requires identifying the emotionally disturbed worker and inducing him to seek help, as well as determining what treatment is required. The conference analyzed the need for coordination of government, labor, and community mental health programs. (BH)
