Abstract

We agree wholeheartedly with Dr. Paulson in saying that contracting is no panacea. There are many pitfalls just as there are in any activity requiring skill and commitment. However, being optimists and having great faith in the ability of human beings to accomplish the things they wish, we believe the unique advantages of contract agencies and the clarity of purpose which the contracting process often brings can be important keys to the contractors success in delivering mental health services.
