Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Psychiatrist needed to head team Mental health clinic grows : CRANBROOK (Special) -East Kootenay Public Mental Health Clinic, on the upper floor of the operating health centre on North 2nd St., will reach three-quarters completion o� . professional staff in April. Michael Coates, now a practising psychologist in Scotland, joins the staff then. East Kootenay CHMA spearheaded a drive toward establishing its own public mental health unit for East Kootenay. CMHA was told by the department of health East Kootenay would have its own service when it could provide proper quarters, and the, branch led a public campaign to construct and put the Health Unit Building into operation 18 months ago, but since then the department says it is unable to secure a qualified psychiatrist to head the four-member mental health team. Except for staff psychologist for a few months, terminated by his hillness, unit staff has been James Brown, psychiatric social worker, and Mrs. Alex (Pat) O'Neill, mental health nurse. The department still has not found a psychiatrist as team head. Mr. Brown and Mrs. O'Neill currently have 134 patients. Treatment is through referral by the patient's own doctor, but those appealing for help directly are also accepted. Most are adults and the majority require interview series with files kept active for six months, including those adults requiring only a few interviews toward securing the needed help. This skeleton staff makes a major service of its series group discussions on problem family relationships at any East Kootenay point where a group wishes to establish such sessions. Participants have found these helpful in both Cranbrook and Creston.
