The final chapter synthesizes the various contributions of the volume into a model with the following four components for transformative change in community mental health: (a) ecological levels of analysis, (b) change strategies, (c) type of change, and (d) targeted change outcomes. This final chapter strives to capture the essence of these different change efforts in a conceptual framework that more clearly indicates the key components of transformative change at multiple levels of analysis and strategies for achieving such changes. Hopefully, the exemplars of transformative change presented in this volume and the authors’ attempts at conceptualizing them will prove useful to community psychologists and others who seek to change mental health systems around the world. The chapter concludes by discussing future directions for research and action for transformative change in community mental health.
