Applying State Mental Health Standards: Management Uses.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
This report is directed particularly to state mental health agency directors and members of their management teams and support systems such as the budget offices, legislative committees and board members. Through a survey of the status of mental health program evaluation within the state mental health agencies in the South, it was found that few state mental health facilities have access to guidelines for setting and maintaining standards. This report is offered to those professionals needing guidance and recommendations on whether or how to set standards. The report covers three broad areas: (1) major issues in the development of standards, (2) management uses of standards and (3) conceptual issues in standards. (Author/FC)
