The Effects of Contemporary Economic Conditions on Availability and Quality of Mental Health Services

  • Alex R. Rodriguez

Abstract

A revolution is surely occurring in the American way of health (Califano, 1986). It is neither silent, subtle, nor sudden. Like any true revolution, it has been looming for years, waiting for the historical moment. Following a definite developmental process, this one has been evolving in the breeding ground of American culture, political systems, and socioeconomic conditions for many years. Future historians will find this revolution both intriguing and historically logical. It will be analyzed as a course of multiple conflicting and converging forces that ultimately could not all be individually or collectively sustained. Fortunately, it will not be a story of cataclysm, but it will be one of dramatic change. This chapter reflects on that revolution as it is now unfolding and focuses on its expression in, and its impact on, the availability and quality of mental health services.
