Amidst sweeping changes in the business, management, and economics of behavioral health, community mental health agencies must prepare for turbulent times ahead. They need information and tools by which to create and executive new strategies for their services. They must redeploy to be more like social entrepreneurs.

Behavioral health agencies can make good use of business concepts and tools already well established first in business and now in goverment and many non-profit sectors, including health care. One particularly useful tool is the Balanced Scorecard.
