The purpose of this chapter is to outline these challenges to improving delivery of effective treatments for adolescents and their families and to define a set of research and policy directions that may help improve delivery. In particular, a number of major multisite studies supported by several foundations and federal agencies are currently under way to examine contextual influences on delivery of youth mental health services. These studies will very likely lead to new ways of thinking about implementation and dissemination of effective practices.
