Outloook: Practice, Evaluation, Research

H Stephen Leff, Ph.D., Vera Hollen, MA


How do we stop having the same conversations? Put differently, after decades of mental health research, why do we feel that all we have learned has not been translated into practice? The three brief reports presented here, all delivered at the Annual Conference of the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors Research Institute, entitled, “How Do We Stop Having the Same Conversations?” point to different but related missing links in developing, testing, and implementing evidence-based practices.
