Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Raj Tummala, MD(Wyeth Pharmaceuticals)
Description: This is a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the fundamentals and the latest topics in mental health administration and management, authored by some of the foremost authorities in the field.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a valuable reference to mental health professionals who are involved in administrative or managerial roles in a mental health organization. The book is targeted to managers with and without clinical backgrounds. The authors have far exceeded their objectives with this outstanding review.
Audience: This book is intended for psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, and business managers who are involved in administrative roles in any mental health organization.
Features: The book's 42 chapters are grouped into seven sections that cover all the major topics in administration. The book eases the reader into administration with a section on mental health management principles followed by a section on mental health environments and the various disciplinary foundations. The book then covers financing, financial analysis, and budgeting. It also covers the latest issues in healthcare management like information technology, human resources, and current legal issues. A very useful primer for new clinician-managers is also included. The reference section is extensive and pertinent.
Assessment: This book has clearly set a new standard. It is easy to read and very well written — a must for anyone involved in mental health administration.
