Cost-financed mental health facility. II. Utilization profile of a labor union program.


Specific data are presened concerning the utilization profile of a cost-financed mental health facility. The utilization is enhanced by a mental health education campaign, but total utilization remains within manageable limits (13 per 1000). The visit rate is 8.5 units per patient and remains well within the plan's dollar limits. Comparison between utilizers and the population from which they are drawn shows disproportionate numbers of males in contrast to other outpatient insurance studies. This may be a unique feature of work-related programs. "Acting out" disorders are more common among these workers than in other psychiatric programs in the same geographic area.
