Abstract

Previous research on federally funded community mental health centers has largely failed to recognize fundamental differences among different types of centers. Here we show that such basic factors as the arrangement for providing inpatient services and the period of initial federal funding have large effects on the development and organization of a center. Although the centers joining the federal program from 1965-1970 are the largest, those facilities funded between 1971-1975 are generally smaller than those funded later. The arrangement for providing inpatient services has an important effect on staffing. This work suggests the national norms may not be the most useful data for evaluating past performance or planning the future of a specific center.
