Program for First International Mental Hygiene Congress Announced

Many subjects are listed on the program of the First International Congress on Mental Hygiene, just received from John R. Shillady, Administrative Secretary, 370 Seventh Ave., New York City. Practically all aspects of mental hygiene will be covered at the Congress. Details of the program have been worked out by a committee of which Dr. Frank-wood E. Williams, medical director of the National Committee for Mental Hygiene, is chairman, collaborating with correspondents in many countries. Topics are now ready for publication, and are contained in an informing, 33-page Preliminary Announcement, obtainable from headquarters office. The Congress will be held in Washington, D. C., May 5-10, 1930. As some of our readers know, President Hoover has accepted the honorary presidency of this Congress, and delegates are expected from more than thirty countries.

Following are some of the subjects, phrased in general descriptions—not as specific titles of papers:

(a)  Magnitude of the mental hygiene problem as a health problem.

(b)  Organization of community facilities for prevention, care and treatment.

(c)  Organization of the mental hospital and its rôle in community life.

(d)  Psychopathic hospitals and psychopathic wards in general hospitals.

(e)  Care and treatment of mental patients outside of institutions.

(g)  Types of personnel required in mental work (physician, psychologist, nurse, social worker, and occupational therapist).

(h)  Methods of training of different types of personnel.

(i)  Clinical and social research in the field of mental hygiene.

(j)  Teaching of mental hygiene and psychiatry in the medical schools: (1) courses for the general student; (2) courses for the student specializing.
