mental health consultation in community

We need mental health consultation in the community.

  • Mental health consultation in the community should be combined with community education.
  • The consultant is people with specialized knowledge,
  • His consult requests help in classifying a problem, increase his skill in handing a disturbance or crises, or raising the mental health level of a person or group for whom he is responsible.
  • The client can be individual person, or group an agency or institution.
Mental health consultation in community:-

A consultant acts as a psychological change agent.

  • He deals directly with the consultant but in directly with the problem, nevertheless, his focus is on the problem, not on the interpersonal process.
  • Thus mental Health consultations usually defined as the interactions between a consultant an a counsel on behalf of a client.

Mental health consultation beings with a meeting between consultant and counsel over a specific problem with the expectation that the problem can be alleviated or resolved within a short time.

  • Through study, education or specific action, the knowledge of both is used to arrive at a reasonable solution.
