Brandeis University will begin a program in September to train social workers for leading roles in community mental health planning, it was announced here today. The program, underwritten by annual grants of $34,000 from the National Institutes of Health, will be conducted by the faculty of the Florence Heller Graduate School for Advanced Studies in Social Welfare.

It will be designed “to develop more personnel for posts where they can build into the community structure the tools needed to maintain mental health,” according to Dr. Herbert H. Aptekar, program director and professor of social welfare at the Heller School.
