The committee’s search yielded 10 interventions that met its criteria and could serve as models for the delivery of psychosocial health services. These are identified and discussed in Chapter 4.


The committee’s scope of work specified nine tasks (one of which was the identification of models of psychosocial care as described above). The remaining eight called for the following:

• Review of the recommendations of previous IOM and other reports on psychosocial services

• Determination of why the recommendations contained in prior reports were not implemented and of possible ways to address barriers to care

• Documentation of

–  types of services needed/provided

–  availability and use of services

–  who is using services and how they are accessed

–  what patients are told/given as their condition evolves (flow of care)

–  provider capacity

–  how services are paid for in various community settings

• Analysis of reimbursement issues and development of recommendations for change

• Analysis of workforce issues, including current and overall capacity required in the community to meet psychosocial health care needs
