My community clinical was at the Denver House Mental Health Association located in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This is a day center for targeted for the people with mental illnesses and homeless, which opened in 2012 (mhaok.org). Many of the homeless population in Tulsa, Ok suffer from a mental illness. Due to the lack of resources in our community, those who suffer from a mental illness end up on the streets. The day center provides a safe warm place for the homeless and those with mental illnesses. They provide a stigma free welcoming environment were those feel welcome to come and interact with peers. The organization also has specific workers that help with finding shelter, apartments, and jobs. They also have a community closet for clothing that is open every Tuesday and Thursday. You must be 18 years old, be drug free while on premises, and follow basic rules to come to the Denver House.

The community-based mental health programs are not only inadequate in relation to numbers, but also underfunded (Unite for Sight.org, 2013). According to Martin (1995), we live in a society that is increasingly becoming conscious of an excessive tax burden. Tax burden, on the other hand, provides for the realization of just how deinstitutionalization is directly related to politics and public policy. The pubic in America who account for the electorate, have a significant say in how policy is affected. To this extent the assumption in relation to deinstitutionalization is that due to increased public outcry in regards to taxation, the both federal and state governments have over the years been forced to cut down spending on some items in the recurring budget in order to free up additional funds. According to Treatment Advocacy Center (2011), the federal government in 1965 surgically excluded the payment of Medicaid for patients institutionalized in state psychiatric and other mental disorders institutions. The goals of this action, according to Treatment Advocacy Center (2011) was to foster deinstitutionalization, and the wading of care costs to sates, viewing them as largely responsible for mental care.

Prior to the 1960s, counseling was mostly seen in schools and universities (Smith, 2012). The Community Mental Health Centers Act of 1963, one of the most influential acts dealing with mental health needs of Americans, mandated the creation of mental health centers in over 2,000 locations (Guindon, 2011). The new law provided funding for the delivery of preventive mental health interventions, direct counseling, outreach, substance abuse treatment, and many other services in communities (MacCluskie & Ingersoll, 2001; Scileppi, Teed, & Torres, 2000). During this time, effective antipsychotic medications were created and there were mass

Last semester, I was lucky enough to have the support and guidance of Dr. Patterson through this process.
