9780060915971: Nowhere to Go: The Tragic Odyssey of the Homeless Mentally Ill
From Library Journal:

The title is deceiving because it implies that this work is about the daily plight of the homeless mentally ill. Instead, the book centers on the reason for their plight, arguing that the closing of mental hospitals, the exodus of mental health workers into private practice, and the failure of the community mental health centers have forced many severely ill mental patients out on the streets. Though the book effectively demonstrates how the mental health establishment in the United States has failed to provide adequate care for severely ill patients, it assumes that the majority of the homeless are mentally ill without presenting evidence that this is the case. For college and research libraries. Kim Banks, Columbia Univ. Libs., New York

From Publishers Weekly:

Millions of homeless people roam the streets of America, and the consensus is that one-third of them suffers severe mental disturbance. In a "powerful, stinging expose," Torrey diagnoses this national tragedy, faulting psychiatrists, civil-liberties lawyers, the National Institute of Mental Health et al. "No other book has dealt with this crisis so thoroughly," remarked PW.
