Show Summary Details

Preview

The response of the mental health system to troubled youth and their families is in a period of transition, and changes are occurring in both the conceptualization of what constitutes effective intervention and in how services are delivered. This chapter describes the initiatives and research findings that have driven these changes within a system of care and outcomes framework. It traces the history of children's mental health services, and presents forecasts for future developments.
