Florence Morning News (Newspaper) - November 24, 1970, Florence, South CarolinaTuesday november 24, 1970 .9 Public support could be key major mental health facility possible by 1972 by William h. Durant morning news staff writer if plans work out area residents of All races and Ages who Are emotionally disturbed or mentally ill will probably no longer have to go to the state mental Hospital a t Columbia for treatments. They will be Able to receive much of that kind of help right Here at Home at a place called the Florence Marion Darlington comprehensive mental health Center hopefully As Early As 1972, if backers of the move have their Way. The word is hopefully because efforts and plans by the pee Dee health association s Board of directors to bring such a facility to the pee Dee have been con stantly deferred due several obstacles. The Board Hopes to have a sponsor for the Center soon but has met with com plications in obtaining one. Plans Are for the new Center to be added onto the existing facilities at the pee Dee Center. The pee Dee Center located Between Florence and Darlington is presently equipped to offer outpatient services professional consultation in Community serv ices diagnostic services and research and evaluation. Its staff s hours Are mostly part time and the Only full time employee is a psychiatric social worker. The remaining personnel include two other part time psychiatric social workers and one part time psychologist. A pair of private practising psychiatrists work at the Center one Day per week. In addition every room at the Center is an office which Means that there ape no Hospital Beds or other medical tools. An existing medical Center could Supply most of the needed equipment. The main obstacle standing in the Way for a new Center according to a member of the steering committee for the proposed Center mrs. Lucy Davis is Federal funds. The funds were first made Avail Able several years ago for local assistance in upgrading and establishing adequate mental health centers and Florence was on the top of for South Carolina in priority to receive those funds. This was because it met the three requirements set by the u. S. Department of health education and welfare the Agency who regulates allot ment of this Type of Money. There Are the right statistics on the extent of mental illness in this area it is serving a Large segment of the Popula Tion and probably most important of All Florence already has a working mental health Center started on its own. Said mrs. Davis due to our Lack of a professional person to compile the necessary information and put in an application for the Money Florence s place slipped Down on the list through the other areas such As Spartanburg and Greenville had this advantage Back then and applied for funds. Both now have their own Complete mental health facilities she said. Later the Board of directors of the pee Dee mental health association of which mrs. Davis is a member did hire what they Call a that person who has since assumed a Posi Tion elsewhere was to gather the necessary information to be submitted As part of the application for funds and establish connections with other organizations which might further the development of the comprehensive Center. The coordinator succeeded in acquiring some of the Basic information necessary for the application and in forming a Short lived in service training group with medical personnel from a local facility. However some of the hopefully beneficial area facilities such As hospitals that could serve As sponsors or co sponsors of medical services could not be persuaded to lend their Aid and bring us mrs. Davis noted. With this behind them the pee Dee Center Board is now determined to Start anew this time to accomplish what they have been trying to do for years and compile the application information to ask for the Money for themselves not later than next March. Word on the state of the application should be available not Long after it is submitted. We won t really know whether we will actually go ahead and ask for full said mrs. Davis until we Rule out the idea of a co Spartanburg has a Hospital co sponsor while Greenville has everything under one roof. A patient at the proposed comprehensive Center could receive some individual treat ment tailored to his needs As he progresses from initial diagnosis to prescribed treat ment and Back to Normal life in the Community without the effects of isolated Hospital residence she explained. It would add needed facilities to the pee Dee Center. Such improved plans close to Home should mean earlier release of Many More patients along with better follow up on the rehabilitation of returning patients from Columbia or elsewhere. A kindergarten will hopefully be added mrs. Davis said with possible help Given to the school District and other Agen cies. If such a service is to be she said the Community can play an important part for Volunteer workers will be called on for All types of help such As typists for the application which when completed will resemble a Book. Says mrs. Davis if we feel we re getting Public support then we will be Able to accomplish Many things. Apathy and the Lack of con Cern could defeat our City Council meeting housing program Resolution passed by Carl Reynolds morning news staff writer a Resolution establishing a meaningful and effective continuing housing program for Florence was adopted monday during a special meeting of the Florence City Council. I n another action Council signed a contract subject to approval and counter signing by the state College Board of trustees to run City water to Francis mar Ion College. A number of other items also were on the Agenda. Dominating the action however was the housing authority of Florence s pro position presented in behalf of the authority by Davis Byrd director of City planning. In essence the Resolution Calls for phasing current Public hous Mali thring projects Over a three year period in efforts to achieve present goals. It also provides for a continuance of supplying housing needs for years beyond the immediate goal of three years. As outlined the implementation of the three year program housing element Calls for 1971 scheduling a metropolitan wide housing con Ference for greater Florence s potential housing needs develop a uniform area wide code f such housing development establish procedures to reviews updating and revision the codes As deemed necessary to maintain compatible Harmon with the area s housing an population trends establish i term goals based on Curren studies and reviews meet Wil potential sponsors of federally supplemented or non supplemented to usin developers and increase the number of personnel and the financial budget of the housing authority in order that its in creasing work Load my be pro Perly implemented.
