Serving the Seriously Mentally Ill: Public–Academic Linkages in Services, Research, and Training
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
This volume draws on the thinking of more than 100 representatives of public service and academic organization, mostly psychologists, who participated in the 1990 National Conference on Implementing Public–Academic Linkages for Clinical Training in Psychology, cosponsored by NIMH and Georgetown University. It presents recommendations developed in the conference to advance the clinical training of psychology, and especially, to meet the mental health needs of the major underserved populations. In highlighting what can be done by psychologists to respond to the needs of such underserved groups through linkages between public and academic agencies, this volume holds promise for more efficient, effective, and relevant clinical training.
