to weekend flew this Air no servi. — in St. of have that than is with color, even Mental Health Group Plans Political Forum; Sets Open House for Center A candidates forum, to be co-sponsored by the Utah County Mental Health Association, isi tentatively set for the latter part of this month, and was discussed during the recent Utah County Mental Health Association meeting. Rev. Frazer Crocker, chairman of the legislation and political action committee of the association, reported that the plans for the forum were being formulated. The forum would be non-partisan in nature, according to Rev. Crocker, and political candidates for commissioner would answer pointed questions from the interested parties representing the human services organizations of the area. Also discussed during the meeting was the Community Center Open House, which will be held Nov. 12. Assigned to complete this project are Alida Heiner, invitations; Phyllis Bestor, publicity; Mae Helm, reception; Alice Jensen, schools, and Mary Duckett, refreshments. Youth involvement in mental health activities was reported by Alice Jensen, vice president, who attended the National Association of Mental Health Western Meeting held in Las Vegas in September. She stated that to a mental health association, the teenager of today is very important. He represents the first generation to have grown up facing the major social problems. He has begun to question the old wives tales about the mentally ill, and has tried to rid his mind of the stigma surrounding mental illness, she said. She told of a youth group in Phoenix, Ariz., TAMI (Teens Against Mental Illness), who perform clerical work, assist in door to door campaigning, and in volunteer work at their state hospital, either on a one-to-one basis with the patients, or in group projects. The Utah County Mental Health Organization considered the possibility of spearheading such a youth organization in this area during their meeting. President Lynn Ravesten was assigned to represent the association at th« National Convention for Mental Health in Boston .Mass., in late November, and D. V. Tregeagle, principal of the Provo High School, was appointed as a new board member. A program bureau, which will be sponsored by the associa- ton, is presently in the planning. Brochures have been printed and sent to many community organizations and interested individuals. Many people in the county have agreed to participate to the program bureau and with adequate preparation time and proper scheduling, will accept invitations to speak to business, civic, education, professional and social groups. The four general types of programs available are speakers, films, panels, and films with discussion. Thos« desiring to make arrangements for thes« programs may contact Aldii Heiner at 373-4400 Ext. 276. All members of the associt- tion were encouraged to attend he State Mental Health Associa. ion Meeting on Oct. 21, in Salt ^ake City. GROWING TULSA TULSA, Okla.
