System based coordinated mental health services work by forcing the client into a more structured lifestyle as a function of accessing the services.
Yes, people living chaotic lives will function better when organized. But employing that as a service model means essentially Imposing beauracracy on a family.
"Imposing beauracracy" is probably a good definition of therapy. Of course most therapists would object to that connotation, and that's why they often bristle against this kind of thing. But if they could just be transparent about it, it might not be so bad.
The truth is all the legislation that has given parity to mental health has been passed on the basis of the argument that mental health is in the public's best interest not necessarily the individual's best interest. So all the programs are serving the public good not the good of the clients. Conflicts of interest arise all the time.
Tying individual to the public interests is the real motive of treatment planning.
