Mental Health Planning Conference for the Spanish Speaking (Bethesda, Maryland, January 11-12, 1972).
Riley, Susan G., Ed.
The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Mental Health Planning Conference for the Spanish Speaking was held on January 11-12, 1972, in Bethesda, Maryland. Thirty Spanish speaking professionals and nonprofessionals from 12 states and the District of Columbia met with NIMH and the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. The conference proceedings are listed in 5 sections: (1) the conference in perspective, (2) reports of group meetings, (3) responses by the various NIMH divisions, (4) summary of recommendations by the participants and some divisions, and (5) a list of conference participants. Opening remarks by NIMH staff detailed the conference purpose and expectations; the conference as a step toward program planning for the Spanish speaking; DHEW health initiatives; present and future status of the minority center; and NIMH priorities. Reports discussed mental health services, manpower and training, special mental health programs, alcoholism and drug abuse, and mental health research. The divisions of mental health service, manpower and training, extramural research, special mental health, and the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism made responses. (NQ)
