NATIONAL EXPERT TO TALK ON FUTURE OF MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS

 PONTIAC, Mich., Oct 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Karl Dennis, a nationally known expert on community- and home-based delivery of mental health services to children and adolescents, will give a free lecture at the Michigan State University Management Education Center from 6:45-9 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 18.
 The presentation, titled "Wraparound Services: A New Way of Caring," is open to parents, teachers, mental health professionals, clergy and other interested people. The center is at 811 W. Square Lake Road, Troy, Mich.
 Dennis is executive director of Kaleidoscope, Inc. in Chicago. Under his guidance, Kaleidoscope has been an innovator in the delivery of mental health services which preserve family life and wrap people and services around children -- not walls.
 The concept -- which many experts say is the wave of the future -- has been widely adopted in Illinois where almost 1,000 institutionalized youngsters have been returned to their homes in the past few years. Wraparound treatment has proven to be effective and highly cost- efficient.
