The Delivery of Mental Health Services in Small Communities: An Experimental Model.
LeUnes, Arnold
A model for the delivery of mental health services to people residing in small communities (less than 10,000 population) is presented. The model is the product of personal consultation experience over the past three years with a modestly staffed and financed but very successful mental health agency. Emphasis is placed on community action, political and financial autonomy insofar as possible, economy, intelligent use of paraprofessionals, and the careful hiring of permanent and consultative staff. In essence, it is the creation of a general model based on the success of one specific agency which epitomizes the points previously emphasized. (Author)
