In this chapter strategies for improving the current U.S. system of mental health service delivery are explored. Reforming the current mental health system is a complex and daunting task. Constructive solutions require that multiple aspects of this challenge be taken into account, including a philosophical change in the way we view mental health, scientific and technological advancements, workforce requirements, and funding considerations. In addition, contextual factors, including cultural, social, political, and broader economic influences, must be considered as new structures are developed. A central theme that impacts decisions at micro- and macro-levels is the need to balance concerns about individual rights and welfare with concerns about public safety.
