The book includes 21 chapters organized into four sections: Conceptual Foundations of Systems of Care, Integrating Clinical Modalities Into Systems of Care, Working Across Populations and Settings, and Administration and Evaluation of Systems of Care. The first section includes contributions on the history of community care, a conceptual framework for providing care for children and families, family advocacy, collaborations needed across disciplines and agencies, and cultural competence required to provide care. The second section discusses pharmacotherapy, evidence-based community interventions, and case management. The third section covers different systems of care (e.g., juvenile justice and school-based services), special populations (e.g., youth with comorbid disorders, foster children in child welfare), and the collaboration required of community systems with primary care. The final section discusses systems of care in relation to federal, state, and local government, managed care, legal mandates, outcome evaluation to improve quality, and training of child psychiatrists and other mental health professionals for systems of care.
