55 Pa. Code § 4210.143. Education service.

§ 4210.143. Education service.

 Education service is an organized method by which a practitioner in the field of mental health or intellectual disability furnishes professional groups, community agencies and the general public with information about mental health and intellectual disability. By disseminating mental health and intellectual disability information, education service facilities both primary and secondary prevention by the early identification of those members of the population who are at risk. When possible, provisions should be made by the administrator through base service units or other contractual facilities for sufficient out-reaching personnel with the objective of bringing persons so identified into the care-taking network. In the field of tertiary prevention, education is important in helping the public accept persons with a mental disability, provide employment and in other ways enhance their returning to and remaining in the community in useful roles.
