The culture of mental health care is being reshaped through community-based innovations, both across the United States and internationally, that are enabling healing and recovery in community. This chapter presents where the evolving traditions of community-based clinical practice have been most influential. As the practice examples in this volume are previewed, the values and perspectives of community work come to life. The chapter shows that mental health care is being transformed through clinicians' recognition that working with the resourcefulness and meaning of community is more than simply working in community.
