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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"I can’t think of anything more important or rewarding than doing what the authors of this book do every day: encouraging young people to learn to live with their illnesses, helping them get the skills they need, whether it is how to cook a meal or how to study for a test, and supporting their efforts in large ways and small." -Foreword by Sylvia Nasar, author of A Beautiful Mind and Professor, Graduate School of Journalism, Columbia University

"This text fills a practical and educational need by pulling together state of the art, cutting edge, and original research and scholarship on the changing dynamics of community mental health services in the United States." – Carmen Ortiz Hendricks, Yeshiva Wurzweiler School of Social Work
