The practice of community mental health care demands the introduction of suitable models of intervention. Community medicine, which has preceded the development of community mental health, offers operative models based on epidemiologic concepts and techniques. This paper analyses the different components of community diagnosis, a necessary step in the process of community intervention. A practical example illustrates the use of the latter by the mental health worker.
