Youth Services Program in the Elementary School and Community.
Hillock, David A.; And Others
The traditional service programs are not doing the job of providing the comprehensive services needed for youth. Using the following premises as a foundation, an alternative model of providing services for youth is possible: (1) A person does not have to go to a Mental Health Clinic in order to get service. Services can be provided in a local setting; (2) People do not have to play the waiting game. The burden lies with the worker to deal with the family; and (3) Workers can be and should come from the community they serve. This plan results in quality service, and respect for the person (client) in a community setting by the use of a "Non Labeling Process." Specific community models are described which focus on team approaches to services, community education and support, and referral methods. (Author/JLL)
