The causes and consequences of mental disorders involve concepts, methods, and syntheses that are relatively new to the study of epidemiology and public health. As the intersections of these topics become increasingly relevant, Public Mental Health provides a comprehensive introduction to public health approaches to mental and behavioral disorders--and to the overall promotion of mental health.

The volume details the latest methodologies for studying the occurrence of mental disorders in populations, including estimates of burden, cultural differences, natural history, and disparities between population subgroups. It includes reviews of genes as risk sources, the occurrence of stresses and their timing over the life span, and crises and disasters as sources of risk. It is an increasingly important resource for researchers, students, and practitioners in public health and its surrounding disciplines.

About the Author:


William W. Eaton, PhD, is Professor in the Department of Mental Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Review:

The strengths of this text are extensive. The book never loses sight of prevention as the ultimate goal in public health and as the ideal future for the field. The cultural aspects that are so often neglected in the literature are comprehensively discussed in an opening chapter and referenced throughout. The epidemiologic models that frame each chapter are at the forefront of current research, particularly the use of the life-course approach. Finally, the sections and chapters are well coordinated, with little overlap or redundancy. * American Journal of Epidemiology * In this short review, I can only briefly communicate the content of the many excellent chapters by choosing some examples to convey the scope of this volume... The authors deserve our appreciation for a masterful volume that will do much to advance understanding of mental health as an essential public health challenge. * David Mechanic, Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare * In terms of summarizing and organizing the many impressive findings on our understanding of mental and behavioral disorder from a populational perspective, this is a tour de force. * Erick Messias, MD, MPH, PhD, Medical Director, Walker Family Clinic, Department of Psychiatry, University of Arkansas for the Medical Sciences * This volume will both solidify public mental health as a field of science and practice and become the primary source for information on its knowledge base. * Raymond P. Lorion, PhD, Dean, College of Education, Towson University *
