ABSTRACT
This paper reports on an evaluation of the impact of the Kansas Mental Health Reform Act. The act sought to reduce state hospital utilization, enhance community programming, improve client outcomes, and increase consumer influence over programs. The results are overwhelmingly positive. The unique phased-in implementation plan allows increased confidence that the results were in fact attributable to the act.
