Leadership in Community Mental Health: The Role of the College Mental Health Professionals. A Symposium.
Demos, George D.; And Others
In this symposium, six professionals present related papers on community mental health. The first discusses the role of student personnel services in enhancing community mental health. This is followed by a report concerning the role of the college counseling center. Other papers in the symposium include discussions of: (1) the role of the student affairs office in enhancing community mental health, (2) the role of subprofessionals, (3) the educational role of the psychiatrist, and (4) the role of the psychologist. The report concludes with the transcript of a post-symposium discussion by the participants and the audience. The thrust of this discussion deals with the use of subprofessionals in community mental health. Participants cited evidence from research and practice which supports the use of subprofessional mental health workers. (BW)
