Primary Mental Health Project (PMHP) is a program for early detection and prevention of problems with school adjustment. PMHP identifies young children that have the potential for school problems early in their school careers, and uses trained paraprof essionals as child associates to work preventively with these children. To implement this program, several evaluation forms must be filled out for each student, to determine which children should, or should not, be referred to the program. Unfortunately, a limited number of PMHP professionals are available to evaluate students. Due to this limitation, it was the desire of the author to create an expert system that would take as input the PMHP evaluation forms and produce two forms of output: a profile on each student, giving ratings on various categories and making suggested referrals to the PMHP program when appropriate, and for students referred to PMHP, objectives or goals to be reached within some given timeframe.
