The President’s New Freedom Commission on Mental Health appointed 15 subcommittees to
assist in its review of the Nation’s mental health service delivery system. The full
Commission appointed a Chair for each subcommittee. Several other Commissioners served on each subcommittee, and selected national experts provided advice and support. The experts prepared initial discussion papers that outlined key issues and presented preliminary policy options for consideration by the full subcommittee. The subcommittee reported to the full Commission only in summary form. On the basis of this summary, the full Commission reached consensus on the policy options that were ultimately accepted for inclusion in the Final Report, Achieving the Promise: Transforming Mental Health Care in America. Therefore, this paper is a product of the subcommittee only and does not necessarily reflect the position of the full Commission or any agency of the United States Government. (Authors)
