This paper discusses issues related to the development of plans to improve the effectiveness of mental health services for urban First Nations people. The discussion focuses on emerging issues related to health care reform and regionalization. While it is impossible to make specific recommendations without reference to local conditions, developing an awareness of the general issues involved will help in the process of identifying the principles and approaches needed to frame local solutions.
