Description

Examination of Community Mental Health Services for Persons with Serious Mental Illness: A Descriptive Study of 31 Counties in Michigan, Is A Well-Researched Topic, It Is To Be Used As A Guide Or Framework For Your Research.

ABSTRACT

Thirty-one out of 55 Community Mental Health Boards
participated in a survey conducted by the Alliance for the
Mentally 111 of Michigan. This study examined a number of
variables in the questionnaire using a product-moment correlational
analysis.

Results indicated that family and consumer input is
modestly correlated with comprehensive service delivery and
staff/consumer education and training. Budget and the
active number of mentally ill cases had a low correlation
with comprehensive service delivery and staff/consumer
education and training.

Interagency collaboration was modestly correlated with program evaluation, and comprehensive services available to consumers. Weaknesses were noted in the management structure of CMH Boards regarding their mission and purpose in the treatment of persons with
serious mental illness. Discussion of the results and implications for future research are provided.
