Service figures indicate that there
are 8,000,000 persons in the nation
suffering from mental illness at
the present time.
It is also feared that at the
present rate, 1,000,000 children
now in elementary schools will
spend some time in state mental
hospitals in later life, according
to the Public Health Service.
Noting these figures, the Survey
Research Center is attempting to
provide data for the planning of
a program which will facilitate a
person's getting professional psy-
chiatric help when he needs it.
Evaluation of interviews com-
pleted in Phoenix and forwarded
to the center is now underway.
Complete results of this study will
be available later in the month.
