This book addresses evaluation issues relating to community-based mental health services for children and young people with emotional and behavioural problems.
The contributors discuss recent evaluations of the effectiveness of systems of care and specific intervention strategies. In addition to describing their individual research, they consider: issues facing researchers conducting mental health evaluation; limitations of evaluation in mental health services; and implications for future research.
