Handbook of Community-Based Clinical Practice

This chapter weaves together reflections on two journeys, one quite public and the other more private. The public journey is the evolution of services for children with serious mental health problems in America over the past century and how the experience of one state — Connecticut — provides a more in-depth look at what has and has not occurred. The private journey is the evolution of the author's own thinking about children's mental health service systems, informed by her education as a clinical and community psychologist, her training in the world of public policy, her experience working in leadership positions in federal, state, and local settings over the past 20 years, and her most recent work in Connecticut. The chapter explores how these journeys have intertwined and what might be learned from each.
