What Are the Facts about Mental Illness?
Description:
Gorman was Executive Director of the National Committee Against Mental Illness from 1953 to 1989. The mental illness fact books were part of the organization's mission to improve public understanding of mental illness and generate popular support for federal, state, and local preventive mental health programs emphasizing research, training, and expanded clinic and community services. The 1966 edition reflects changes in mental health legislation and in the NCAMI's focus, e.g., alcoholism had become a target area. Readers could also see how Americans' mental health expenditures compared to those for highways or other public services, and learn of progress in insurance coverage for mental illness.
