Abstract Treatment and services research in the general medical sector has emphasized the importance of addressing organizational capacity to improve interventions for patients with chronic conditions. Efficacious interventions for child and adolescent mental disorders without substantial enhancements in mental health organizational capacity will not result in improvements for children. This paper (a) lists some organizational enhancements that have resulted in improved medical care, (b) briefly underscores recent market trends such as state healthcare reform efforts, increased use of electronic records and contracting initiatives that push consolidation of agencies, and (c) describes one example of the organizational development of child behavioral services that will enhance treatment delivery.
