This conference summary was developed by the staff of the Division of Mental Health and Behavioral Medicine, Institute of Medi- cine, with the advice and assistance of the conference's principal speakers and workshop participants. Major themes, conclusions, and suggestions included in this summmary are reported to provide a full record of the conference deliberations. Their inclusion, however, does not represent policy statements by the Institute of Medicine. The Institute of Medicine was chartered in 1970 by the National Academy of Sciences to enlist distinguished members of appropriate professions in the examination of policy matters per- taining to the health of the public. In this, the Institute acts under both the Academy's 1863 Congressional charter responsibility to be an advisor to the federal government, and its own initiative in identifying issues of medical care, research and education. 2101 Constitution Avenue, N.W Washington, D.C. 20418 (202) 389-6878 TOM Publication 79-004 .
