Abstract

A temporary solution to the manpower problem inherent in trying to meet the mental health needs of people in rural areas is the development of consultation programs. Based upon a history of organization and operation of such a program in rural North Carolina, zo principles, focusing on community sanction, consultation techniques, clinical services and other aspects of community mental health programming are proposed. These are presented as hypotheses to be subject to empirical examination.
