Part of Alexander John Murchison fonds
Item consists of the final draft of a brief compiled by Dr. Alexander Murchison and others on an ad hoc committee under the chairmanship of Dr. Sylvia Keet, prepared for Premier Gerald Regan and his ministers, in April 1971. The subject is "the need for [the] establishment of residential treatment centres for disturbed adolescents in Nova Scotia." The committee received support from Mr. Andrew Crook (Canadian Mental Health) and Mr. Tim Daley (Children's Aid Society and Department of Public Welfare." The data was initially collected by Mrs. Elaine Fraser in April 1970 when she was a student at the Maritime School of Social Work, and the final analysis was conducted by students of that school under the direction of Mr. Frank Winters.
