Community Mental Health is a significant interdisciplinary resource for students, practitioners, or policy planners, engaged in the evaluation and development of programs in the human services.
Jessica and Sam Rosenberg have carefully pulled together a book containing twenty-two original chapters by leading scholars, consumers, and practitioners in the community mental health field. Together, they offer a wealth of knowledge on the substantial challenges facing contemporary community mental health today.
Packed full with information for both students and practitioners of social work, psychology, sociology, psychiatry, and related disciplines, this comprehensive text includes best practice treatment models for co-occurring disorders, homelessness and mental illness, psychosocial rehabilitation, psychopharmacology, and outpatient treatment. Cutting edge for students and practitioners, this book contains the most up-to-date theory and research about community mental health.
