Mental Health and Learning: When Community Mental Health Centers and School Systems Collaborate.
National Inst. of Mental Health (DHEW), Rockville, MD.; Office of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
This book suggests the collaboration of community mental health centers with school systems since both are concerned with the healthy development of children's emotional lives and with learning. While school collaboration provides maximum opportunity for the center to fulfill more of its obligations to children with the most efficient use of manpower and funds, the book urges new forms of intervention with goals and objectives jointly determined and clearly stated. It further recognizes problems inherent in both systems that make collaboration difficult and the required precise strategies and methods of organization. The book closes with several examples of collaborative programs. (Author/LAA)
