Could you back worth?" desirabilitv of extendine local f W the recently approved Short of Mental Hygiene Preceding introduction of Dr. Rudin, Mrs. John Petry, head of the County Committee on t h e Short-Doyle Act, sketched a brief picture of what is already being done for the mentally ill. Historically, she pointed out, the state has assumed responsibility for those persons with mental and emotional afflictions; establishing hospitals, out-patient clinics and facilities to assist persons dismissed after institutional treatment. Counties on the other hand, have cared for the physically ill and the aged, as well as the legal mechanics of committing persons needing mental care to state hos pitals. The new legislative act opens up the way for local areas to take a direct part in providing for the mentally ill, Mrs. Petry said. Dr. Rudin emphasized that the Short-Doyle Act is permissive legislation only, written by the California Medical Assn. after an ear lier proposal prepared by the Departments of Finance, mental hygiene unit and state auditor, was defeated. It enables the state to provide half the operating costs . i,aQitu rnm-;, at a jlocal Jevel if individual or com. bined communities or counties wish tQ establish them Rudin gaid At the ent time n such haye been set up the f 4. ,mH7 . 'while two oth K e r n County apd Santa Monica, have been outlined and are awaiting final approval. Annual costs vary from 538,000 to $500,000, depending on the scope of the project. PROVISIONS NOTED The bill, Dr. Rudin explained, requires communities or groups of communities to serve a population of 50,000 before they are eligible for state aid. There are five types of provisions which may be included in the program; two of these must be provided before state reimbursement is received. These include out-patient clinics, hospital facilities for acute cases, rehabilitation centers, a general education program in mental health for the public and consultation service utilizing phy- sicians, clergymen, lawyers, social service workers and educators. Before being eligible for state aid, the area must declare its intention of setting up a program, appoint a mental health advisory board, composed of three physi cians, a suptruuL tuiiu juusc, a representative of, government and two laymen, iiie iical appointment of a director of mental , health services and completion of a basic plan. VOLUNTARY PATIENTS ONLY State assistance is limited to one half of the operating expenses only, Dr. Rudin emphasized. All capital expenditures must be provided by the organizing body. Another important provision of the Short-Doyle bill is that all persons using the serv- ices must be voluntary patients and unable to obtain assistance otherwise. Presiding at the luncheon session, in the absence of the Rev. Paul Kennedy, president of t h e West End Assn., was the Rev. Paul Goering. A welcome was extended the guests by Mayor Abner Haldeman of Upland, Coun cilman John Cooper of Ontario and State Assemblyman Eugene G. Nisbet. Suit Filed Against Stardust at Vegas LAS VEGAS, Nev.
