Patient vs Client in Community Mental Health
Hinkle, Andrew
Human Services in the Rural Environment, 3, 3, 5,26, Mar 78
Illustrating modern community mental health philosophy, this article asserts that the term "client" is preferable to that of "patient" because it implies some measure of personal responsibility, does not carry the connotation of "mental patient", and is a respectable reference to those who patronize community mental health services.
