Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Local CMHA plans busy year By MARLEME COOKSHAW Herald Staff Writer A step-up in the volunteer- recruiting program and an em- phasis on student Involvement are two of the most important changes currently taking place in the Southern Alberta Region of the Canadian Mental Health Association. Lola Wall, who recently re- placed Molly Mitchell as super- visor of the CMHA, said she planned on developing certain aspects of its work as much as possible. While the hospital program would remain much the same, she hoped to expand the life- line project substantially. The lifeline aspect of the pro- gram assigns volunteers to help people with emotional problems on a person-to-person basis. The individuals receiving the supportive friendship are those anticipating discharge or who have been discharged from a psychiatric ward, persons undergoing private psychiatric care, or individuals who are facing a personal crisis in their lives, Mrs. Wall emphasized the fact that such people were not acutely disturbed individuals who required professional ther- apy, but only people who lack- ed a stable friendship exper- ience. Foster homes needed Mrs. Wall said anotlier, strong need of the organization was for foster homes. Family situations are very Important for patients recently discharged from institutions and hospitals, she said. Those who accept a person into their home are remunerated for room and board. The CMHA plans to approach the school board at the begin- ning of October to suggest the possibility of awarding high school students with three to five credits for' work with the organization. Also in line with their at- tempt to involve students will: the CMHA would be work with students who were recom- mended by a counsellor as having social or emotional problems. Mrs. Wall is attempting to expand the regional develop- ment area of the program. She felt that good headway was being made in Raymond Magrath, Coaldalc and Fort Macleod, and hoped to have the rural groups working closely with organization soon. Groups of volunteers from Lethbridge currently travel t the Raymond Hospital to enter tain patients. Unveiling of a memorial to IB memory of the late Drig.- -ien.
