The articles in this section of the journal provide just a glimpse of the activity underway to promote shared decision making in mental health. Nevertheless, they are important windows into the new world of possibilities regarding care planning, medication management and the use of information technology. Thus, in this paper we discuss the promise of shared decision making for advancing the field. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2013 APA, all rights reserved)
