Sir. Coombs reasoned this was because "there is less and less on hos- pita'.-bc-cd treatment. "The thrust now is to get the patient back to the com- munity. The problem of in- stitutionalizatioa is probably the most serious erne there is. "The comm-jnity level of acceptance is greatly improv- he said. Civil rights "The civil rights people, here and in the States are getting very concerned. Real- istically, it is not legitimate for society to remove and take away somebody's free- dom, just because he hap- pens to have a peculiar idea or belief. "If he becomes dangerous or threatening to somebody else, the matter Mr. Coombs asserted. "Because an individual is tagged with a psychiatric diagnosis does that give society any prerogative for denying him freedom? "By and. large, it wouid be fairly accurate to say if there were enough people ap- proached by other interested people, there wouldn't be the r.sed for psychiatric treat- merit. Monday, Mayor Andy An- derson will officially proclaim May 1 to 5 Mental Health Week in Lethbridge, and 30.- 400 letters will be mailed to people in southern Alberta ex- plaining some of the CMHA programs and asking for 000 to finance them. Recent statistics show that one out of four Canadians is. or will be, mentally ill and more than one milBon chil- dren are learning disabled or emotionally disturbed. Even the smallest contribu- tion to CMHA will be of im- mense value to people need- ing help. WALTER COOMBS executive director ana out of L OFY programs to be approved Opportunities for Youth pro- jects this year are expected-to offer employment opportunities for 230 people in Lethbridge and the surrounding area. Of the numerous submissions received by the local OFY of- fice, it was said that 23 should be given final approval and no- tification from Ottawa before the end of the month. Scott MacKinnon, OFY co-or- dinator, said the projects this year were not restricted to any particular age group, but were wide open to all interested per- sons. He said the.OFY is a short- term employment p r ogram which also benefits the com- munity in which it takes place. Mr. MacKinnon said the num- ber of projects to be funded were almost double those of last year, and that there would be a total allocation of "This turns out to be about per job, with the programs generally running from May 15 through to September 1, al- though some are shorter. He said overall submissions xvere down, but that this was because many projects which had similiar objectives had decided to combine programs.

Council asks for action CALGARY (CP) local Council of Women has again asked the provincial govern- ment for legislation requiring reports on actual or suspected instances of child abuse. At their annual meeting here, 50 delegates reaffirmed a 1971 resolution which says existing legislation has "not proven ef- fective in curbing increased in- cidents of child beating and abuse." Court and child welfare agen- cies cannot deal adequately with parents of abused children un- less the abuse is made known, it said. The council resolution follows a request by MLA Roy Wilson Bow) for com- ments on a bill he introduced which would require reports on all cases of child abuse. Failure to report could result in fines of or one year in jail. Delegates were aiso told by the newly-appointed director of the Alberta Women's Bureau that "equalitv for women is still a myth." Catharine Arthur of Edmon- ton said the two-woman govern- ment bureau plans to take more action on women's rights. Since its formation in 1966. it has been mainly an information centre. home maintenance for senior citizens, consumer investiga- tion, legal aid services, summer games activities, centennial Kelp programs and creative therapy for senior citizens. The region concerned extends from the Crowsnest Pass to Medicine Hat and to the bor- der. Further information may be obtained by contacting Mr. MacKinnon at 327-8909.
