Block Grants and Rural Mental Health Services.
Hargrove, David S.; Melton, Gary B.
Journal of Rural Community Psychology, v8 n1 p4-11 1987

Rural centers may suffer because multipurpose programs responding to a wide range of community needs are excluded from the mental health service delivery concept. (JHZ)
