University Provisions for Psychiatric Services.
Texas Technological Coll., Lubbock.
The problem is stated as follows: university campuses must find a reasonable, responsible, and financially defensive provision for mental health services. The first part of the paper concerns itself with: (1) defining mental health; (2) defending the appropriateness of mental health services as a necessary part of an educational institution; (3) exposing the need for such services; (4) discussing its placement within the organizational structure of colleges and universities; and (5) elaborating its responsibilities to individual students and to the college community as a whole. The second part of the paper presents the findings of the Texas Technological Psychiatric Survey. The responses of 73 universities to a psychiatric questionnaire were tabulated so as to provide information on numerous aspects of existing university mental health services including staffing, referrals, funding, extent, and effectiveness. Based on: (1) this survey; (2) a review of pertinent professional literature; (3) authoritative recommendations; and (4) a review of organizational and financial realities of university campuses, conclusions are drawn and resulting recommendations offered.
