Introduction. Shore, M. F. and Cohen, M. D. Milbank Quarterly, 72(1):31--35, 1994.
abstract   bibtex   
An introduction to a collection of articles (see related abstracts in SOPODA 17:1) discussing the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Program on Chronic Mental Illness. The program created centralized mental health authorities in 9 cities in 7 states as a demonstration project. Evaluation teams, selected after the project began, \& a national program office, established to provide technical assistance \& to communicate progress \& results, worked in tandem with the program staff. The project was evaluated as a "logic model" to determine the feasibility of centralized authorities \& to estimate their effect on various outcomes. It has been found that service reorganization does not cancel out the need to supply funds or mental health care. The problems of delay in the publication of results \& of public officials' reluctance to act without definitive research data are described, as are the remedies for these difficulties. 7 References.
