How can community mental health centers better integrate evidence-based care for their patients who are experiencing depression?  This new publication, by Cara Lewis, PhD, and Elena Navarro, et al, explores two different methods used in a dynamic cluster randomized trial that sought to implement measurement based care (MBC) for depression in a community behavioral health setting. "Implementing measurement based care in community mental health: a description of tailored and standardized methods" may be useful for researchers, clinicians, and agency administrators that want to implement MBC, as well as those planning to use standardized or tailored methods for interventions beyond behavioral health.
