Larry Hayes has written a straight forward and succinct book on how communities can support, promote healing, and ultimately help people who have struggled with mental illness. Mental Illness and Your Town is a "How to Guide" for developing community based supports and services ranging from Suicide Hotlines to Club Houses and job opportunities. It is a great educational resource for community activists and concerned citizens who believe that the success of a community can be measured by how it treats those who are less fortunate (anonymous quotation). Not only can these recommendations potentially save lives, but it increases the likelihood that people who struggle with mental health issues can contribute back as active members of their community. As an author and outreach clinician who has worked with people experiencing homelessness and major mental illnesses, I highly recommend this book. Jay S.
