In the past 20 years, there have been major developments in community mental health care across the world. The Oxford Textbook of Community Mental Health is the most comprehensive and authoritative review published in this field. Combining both traditional and more recent concepts, this work looks at current approaches and details how the subject has evolved over the past decade, addressing controversies, and emphasizes areas of convergence, where social values, medical science, and policy forces agree on specific directions.

The online version of the Oxford Textbook of Community Mental Health contains the full text of the print edition (which can be browsed by the contents list or searched), links from references in the text to external sources (via PubMed, ISI, and CrossRef), and all figures and illustrations from the print edition, downloadable into PowerPoint.

About the Author:

Robert E. Drake is the Andrew Thomson Professor of Psychiatry and Community and Family Medicine at Dartmouth Medical School and the Director of the Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center. He was educated at Princeton, Duke, and Harvard Universities; he has been at Dartmouth for over 26 years. He continues to work actively as a community mental health doctor. He supervises a large number of students, post-doctoral trainees, and junior faculty. His research focuses on people with serious mental illnesses and services that help their recovery, primarily in the areas of co-occurring disorders, vocational rehabilitation, health services research, and evidence-based practices. Current projects include developing and studying electronic decision support systems to enhance communications and shared decision making between clients and clinicians and randomized controlled trials of services for clients with first psychotic episodes and for clients with co-occurring substance use disorders.


This sets the standard for future books in this area. Several chapters covered areas in which I had little knowledge, and they did a good job of presenting the information. * Doody's *
