This chapter functions as an introduction to mental illness as a multifaceted social problem in which music therapists have an integral treatment role. Mental illness is a prevalent and costly social dilemma and people with mental disorders are a marginalized and disenfranchised clinical population. In addition to psychological problems, psychiatric patients also face a multitude of physical health problems. Although diverse treatment models exist, patients are often hospitalized for relatively brief periods in acute-care inpatient settings. While many treatments have been effective in clinical trials, these treatments are often not used in contemporary clinical practice. Advancements in medications, treatments, and brief and time-limited treatment have forced music therapy clinicians to adapt to a new care model in an attempt to augment the likelihood of illness management and recovery.
