The Value of Investment in Neighborhood Residents

Come the Fourth Revolution

‘The success of community mental health care centers, especially in African American neighborhoods, their advocates argued, depended upon the personal investment of neighborhood residents in those centers. Giving residents a voice in how these centers were planned and operated, rather than delivering care in a top-down, paternalistic manner, was essential to engaging a population that distrusted white medical professionals.’—Martin Summers, PhD.

Dr. Summers delivered plenary two: The Fourth Revolution: Community Mental Healthcare and the Politics of Race in the Twentieth-Century United States.
