Community Treatment for Youth

This chapter argues that there are reasons for hope in terms of improved treatment and better outcomes in the field of child mental health. It cites four factors that provide the basis for hope and the rationale for taking action to implement care in the community instead of institutional settings. There is increasing evidence documenting positive outcomes for community-based interventions, improved understanding about how to change clinical practice, the availability of tools and training approaches to improve clinical practice, and policy to facilitate and support the implementation of selected community-based interventions. The aims of the book and overview of the subsequent chapters are presented.

Keywords:   child mental health, community-based interventions, clinical practice, clinical practice, training approaches
