This chapter begins with a brief description of the purpose of this book, which is to make explicit the implicit frameworks of researchers, community practitioners, parents or caregivers, and family advisors about models for creating sustained partnerships to improve knowledge about mental health services for children, adolescents, and their families. It then discusses the principles of collaboration, the science-to-practice gap, family/professional collaboration in child mental health services, and community-based services. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
