Mental Health Training and Public Health Manpower.
Goldston, Stephen E.; Padilla, Elena
This book is based on findings of a research project that dealt specifically with issues in public health work and indirectly with schools of public health, their role in mental health training, and their relevance to professional activities as perceived by those professional public health workers who participated in the survey. Underpinning the inquiry were the notions that: (1) mental health concepts, techniques, and practices enrich and facilitate the operation and acceptance of public health programs and enhance the effectiveness of public health workers; (2) mental health considerations should be an essential aspect of the training programs provided by schools of public health; and (3) schools of public health are appropriate educational settings for the development of mental health specialists.
