  1. Collaboration between local public health and community mental health agencies.

    Article - En anglais

    Public health agencies (PHA) and community mental health agencies (CMHA) generally are organizationally and functionally autonomous.

    Collaboration between PHA and CMHA was explored in a statewide survey of nursing directors of PHA (n=135) and executive directors of CMHA (n=214).

    Findings indicated staff did not know each other well ; clients, funds, and information were infrequently exchanged ; public health nurses rarely were included in planning for the care of those with mental illness ; and satisfaction with relationships was minimal.

    Path analysis was used to test an interagency collaboration model.

    Awareness of staff from other agencies increased satisfaction with interagency processes and interagency relationships.
