Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Government acts on Blair report EDMONTON (CP) Non- medicaj personnel, such as psy- chologists, social workers and nurses, would be given partial power for committing persons for mental treatment under a proposed new Mental Heaiu Act, Introduced in (lie legisla lure. The proposed act says lha two certificates of admission one signed hy a physician, thi other by a non-medical person with qualifications, will be au thority enough lo have a per eon commuted to a lacilily for mental treatment. Health minister Neil CraW' ford said non-medical person, nel mentioned would be li censed by a board and would be given responsibility for ther- apy. "The act is, therefore, rec- ognizing the contribution which can be made to mental health services by those who have been well trained in the behav- ioral sciences." The proposed net, which in- corporates many of the reconr mendalions of the 1968 Blair report on mental health, does away with the 72-hour enforced stay now required for patients being examined in menial ii slitutions. The act, if approve! would allow patients to leave a hospital after 12 hours, if cer- tificates of admission had nol been signed. Mr. Crawford said the Idea ol the proposals is to "provide an improved quality of mental health services to the people of Alberta with greater speed and availability through out the province." Protection of the rights of in- dividual patients and the safety of the public both would be in- creased. Portions of the mental health act of 1964 have been retained In the bill, notably the review procedure where complaints against detention are heard by a tribunal. However, under the new system, said Mr. Craw- ford, this process would be available et "more frequent in- tervals." Mr. Crawford also said thai conaoian A DIVIDEND NOTICE NOTICE h hereby given that Iho Board of Dircclors of this Company has declared fhs Hundred and Forfy- fourth dividend upon the out- llanding Ordinary payable on May 30lh, 1972 to ihe shareholders of record at tho close of business on Monday, Moy 15th, 1972 in the amount of Twenty-six and one-quatrer Cents (26-lic) per ihare.

The act would encourage community care by urging gen eral hospitals to accept the re sponsibility of caring for per sons receiving mental treat ment. The definition of a men lal health facility in the pro> posed act docs not contain any reference to menial hospilals. Region alization of mental health services, said Mr. Craw- ford, is proposed by the cre- ation of regional advisory coun- cils. "Decentralization of services will be encouraged by this pro- vision and will nllow services lo respond in a sensitive mannei to local needs." A provincial mental health advisory council also was plan- ned. The bill also proposes that censorship of communication by patients be banned and re- strictions on visiting be held to 3 minimum. Patients would have to be made aware of theii rights in writing or plain lan- guage, using an interpreter if necessary. There is a provision for per- sons remanded for psychiatric e x a m i n a (ion, after being charged with an offence, to have oul-patient examinations. The Blair report, compiled by Dr. W. P. N. Blair of the University of Calgary, was a :onfroversial issue when the Progressive Conserva lives were in opposition.

General manufacturing, chemical, steel and paper com- panies ended the week with broad advances largely due to tax cuts announced in the budget Monday. But, the encouraging effect the budget had on Canadian markets was almost erased Ly escalation of the Vietnam war early in the week. Reacting to the news of In- creased bombing and blockade of Nortti Vietnam ports by the United States, the Dow Jones industrial average plunged 17 points during the opening 40 minutes of trading Tuesday. Canadian markets reacted In i similar manner and reaction .0 the budget was almost non- existent until midway through the week. INDUSTRIALS UP The Industrial index of the Toronto stock market, a major ndicator of market direction, climbed 1.40 points during the week, closing Friday at 199 88. At New York, prices closed with fractional gains after suf- ering sharp losses early in the veek. Trading was light. On the Montreal and Cana- dian exchanges, the composite index rose 1.04 points during the veek, closing Friday at 203.14. Combined volume on the two ixchanges was 7.93 million ;hares, compared with 0.25 mil- lion last week. Trading was quiet on the To- onto market during most of the veek with a total of 0.88 million hares changing hands, up from .27 million last week. OLDS STRONG Golds continued their strong wrformance for the fourth con- ecutive week. Wednesday, the rice of gold on the London bul- on market topped (U.S.) a ne ounce, more than 515 above he official price of (U.S.) ounce. Prices, however, dged back later in the week, rasing some of the gains cored on Canadian markets.
