Association. The MENTAL HOSPITAL SERVICE (MHS) is made possible by a grant from the Commonwealth Fund and is for a two-year period. At the outset MHS services will be free to the mental hospitals that request them. After a suitable trial period, however, MHS will be made self-sustaining through subscription fees. MHS will function under the direction of Daniel Blain, M.D., who is the American Psychiatric Association's Medical Director with offices in Washington, D.C. A monthly mental hospital news bulletin will report briefly but adequately news of current developments in clinical practices, hospital administration, community relations, legislation, architectural planning, accounting procedures, research, and any and all other types of information which will help hospitals improve the treatment and care of patients. Clients who wish detailed information about any item reported in the bulletin may call upon MHS to supply it. The first issue of the bulletin will appear in January 1950.
