A Commentary on the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Program on Chronic Mental Illness

March 1994 | Stephen A. Somers, Marjorie A. Gutman

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Program (RWJF) on Chronic Mental Illness (CMI) was launched in 1984 to help communities improve the care of people with CMI. Nine communities were funded to develop centralized mental health authorities offering a broad continuum of services. Experts and others who worked on this project learned from their experience that it is possible to produce dramatic improvements in community-based services for people with CMI and other chronic health conditions.
