Educating the future mental health executive: A public health approach

  • Sheila W. Wellington
  • Elizabeth C. Bellis


The mental health program we are developing at the Yale School of Public Health has as its basic element a broad introduction to the concepts and principles of public health and mental health administration and is rooted in concern for community well-being. It is our belief that this combination of public health — mental health training will produce administrators for mental health, psychiatric and human resource agencies who will be able to design, implement, manage, and evaluate programs that improve mental health and help communities evaluate and structure the human services they need.
