News & Views - Oct, 1993 Issue #24 


Tom Croke recently visited Devereux Foundation's Mapleton Center, including Mapleton Psychiatric Institute, and the Hedges. Its conventional psychiatric services approach is not in the usual range reported in this newsletter, but Tom reports two outstanding attributes in his view. l.) Mapleton High School, on grounds, offers a very high powered college preparatory curriculum, taking math through calculus, a broad offering of languages, and comparable advanced levels in other subjects. This seems rare for a psychiatric center. 2.) It is often difficult to place the emotionally fragile but well oriented student in an environment not dominated by conduct disorder types. Mapleton/Hedges makes this distinction well in its selection process, and is an excellent choice for such a student.
