State mental health agencies in the United States manage increasingly larger and complex systems of care.
This requires an increasingly sophisticated work-force and decision support infrastructure.
However, with the exception of larger states with their own research and evaluation offices, few states have the necessary resources to develop these important elements.
Bringing in talent from academic organizations who have research as a priority may be the preferred direction for many states.
The unique approach developed in South Carolina is the first systematic collaboration between a state mental health system and a multi-institutional, interdisciplinary academic group oriented towards developing a comprehensive, statewide infrastructure for policy-relevant mental health services research.
