The author comments on Nirel and Samuel's article showing that psychologists in Israel reported practicing inconsistently with the likely demands of an upcoming Israel mental health reform. Some of the reasons for the differences in preparedness between psychologists and psychiatrists are considered. In addition, incorporating the knowledge from psychology to improve access, assessment, treatment and training in Israel is discussed as a way to help both the reform and psychologists advance treatments in Israel. Finally, a suggestion for 21st century models of service delivery is suggested.
