Creative and responsive community-based clinical practice has emerged through a host of initiatives and programs that are now recognized as important means for meeting mental health needs. There is increasing evidence that these alternative approaches are an important addition to traditional practice and that they have a special role in meeting the needs of those whom traditional services have failed to help. This chapter tries to orient the reader to the field of community-based clinical practice and its increasing significance. It focuses on addressing what community-based clinical practice is, why it is re-emerging now, what traditions it is building upon and expanding, and what significant ideas are fueling its development.
