However, proxitpity of the health centre building and Cranbrook and District Hospital resulted gradually in functioning of both, but for only a single year since 1967 with a psychiatrist. Barrage of protests of un< derstaffing have continued consistently to both the former government and the present government on the urging of CMHA. CMHA function is serving as laymen intent on public education that mental health, Uk« physical health, normally has its ups and downs. However, if acute stage of mental iUnes is recognizable by the patient or those around him, professional help must be available. Physical dislocation of the patient for prescribe treatment is considered undesirable.

Preschool and school children are the ideal subjects for this work, as part of the school health program. However, since last October when Dr. J. M, H, Hopper resigned from direction of the East Kootenay Public Health Unit the area has also been without a professional director of this service as well.
