This issue of RAND Health Quarterly includes a selection of articles on mental health. Rebecca Collins and other RAND researchers evaluated a Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health campaign with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2020 and 2021 that focused on the prevention of and early intervention for mental health challenges—an effort specifically aimed at the team's extensive Hispanic fan base. A team led by Joshua Breslau investigated the availability and accessibility of mental health services in New York City. Eric Apaydin and colleagues synthesized evidence across existing evaluations of transitions between health care systems for patients with mental health conditions.
