The aim of this text is to provide mental health professionals, both those in the field and those in training, a better understanding of the service delivery system and ideas for how to work effectively in it. It examines various driving forces—deinstitutionalization, empirically based practices, managed care—-both in the evolution of the present community mental health care system, as well as the impact on the overall system today.
