Cost-effective integration of mental health professions.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

This article describes the need for cost-effectiveness evaluation of the use of labor within mental health systems. It calls for building on the unique knowledge base of each mental health discipline in the development of new models of care that incorporate clients' social and physical needs and rely less on psychotherapy. The utilization and integration of the core mental health disciplines is described. Recommendations for developing more cost-effectiveness utilization of labor are made.
