Mr. Crawford said tlierapists will include people who are not psychiatrists, such as social workers. The act states that he, as the minister, is lo ap- prove the appointment of ther- apists. The new act stipulates that one of the two admitting ther- apists must be a physician but it does not require the physi- cian to be a psychiatrist.

"When checking for beltha armyworm, look on the under- side of the leaves near the bottom of the plants, being very careful not to touch the plants.

By JOF, MA llernld Staff Writer rpHE PROPOSED Mental Heallh Act contains some realistic improvements, such as regionalizing the ser- vice, delivery sysem, providing more protection lo patients, and recognizing the useful rolo general practitioners, psycho- logists and social workers play in the Held of mental care. Bub there are also n number of problems, Including the existing federal-provincial cosl-sharing method of mental care which, if continued, could gravely hampef the rational utilization of manpower and financial resources. The Mental Health Act, 1972 will receive ils third and final reading at the fall session of Ihe legislature and the Lougheed government has invited responses from the citizens. It is possible to incorporate changes and it is the govern- ments intention to do so before die proposed act become] law. "ft is intended lo switch the principal forces of care from government-operated large centralized hospitals to board- operated regional general hospilals with services and fa- cilities of different types developed locally under the direction or on Ihe advice ol regional boards" the proposed act's ex- planatory notes say. Under the act a mental health facility is any place des- ignated for the observation, care, treatment, control and de- tention of persons suffering from mental disorder. This pro- vides greater manoeuverability in making facilities available. Two certificates for committing a patient are required. They must be issued by therapists now to Include general practitioners, psychologists and social workers in addition to ps; Liiiatrists and clinical psychologists. The act also admon- ishes that one of the two therapists issuing certificates must be a physician. What this means of course is that the government rec- ognizes the acute shortage of psychiatrists, who are physi- cians specializing in mental care, and the useful role played by general practitioners, psychologists and social workers. This broadens the base of resource personnel in expanded mental health services. There is one area which is ill-defined and It tends to create administrative problems. If the regional menial health boards are to have the power the proposed act suggests they will have, who, for instance, should control the psychiatric ward at the Lethbridge Municipal Hospllal? The ward is a "facility" under the act; it is also a unit of the LMH. Both Dr. Scott Angus, chairman of the Lethbridge and Region Mental Health Planning Council, and Andy Andrea- chuk, LMH administrator, do not know how this is going to work out. Dr. Angus doesn't know whether his council is still in existance and has no idea whether, when the act becomes law, his council will be the regional mental health board. One of the Blair Report's recommendations, is, "Mental health must be totally incorporated within the general health field in all respects." The act's explanatory notes also say this should be the case whenever possible. It is understood that the possi health committee under a regional discussed, to integrate mental healt eral health planning, but the subjee ridiculous for the Taber psychiatric ward, let along the fighting Friday, killing eight soldiers and wounding 25.
