Turning the tide: preserving community mental health services.

Abstract

As part of its continuing mission to serve trustees and staff of health foundations and corporate giving programs, Grantmakers In Health (GIH) convened a group of experts from the fields of philanthropy, research, government, and health care on September 19, 2002 to examine the status of community-based services for people with mental disorders. This Issue Dialogue, "Turning the Tide: Preserving Community Mental Health Services," explored how health grantmakers can support community programs that provide critical mental health intervention and treatment services to children and adults. This Issue Brief synthesizes key points from the day's discussion with a background paper previously prepared for Issue Dialogue participants. It includes quantitative and qualitative information on mental health, as well as profiles of public sector, private sector, and grantmaker strategies for promoting improvements.
