The first edition of Community Mental Health quickly established itself as one of the most comprehensive and timely books about mental health practice in community settings. Readers will find that this new edition is also on the leading edge of the field, providing the most up-to-date research and treatment models in the field.

Experts from a wide range of professions – social work, nursing, psychology, psychiatry, public health, sociology, and law – explore the major trends, best practices, and policy issues shaping community mental health services today. Coverage of each topic shifts the focus from management to recovery in the treatment of chronically mentally ill patients. Coverage of organizational and policy issues gives students a head start on mastering the overarching factors that shape their field.

This book offers the greatest breadth of coverage available, including hot-button topics like the following:

  • evidence-based treatments
  • neuropsychiatric perspectives
  • Diversity
  • Substance abuse

New chapters cover a variety of special populations, which ensures students are prepared to work with a wide range of issues, including:

  • returning veterans
  • military families and families of the mentally ill
  • people affected by the "Great Recession"
  • teenagers
  • children
  • the homeless

Students preparing to become mental health professionals, practitioners in community mental health settings, and policy planners and advocates engaged in the evaluation and development of programs in the human services will find this text to be an invaluable resource in their training and work.

A collection of supplemental resources are available online to benefit both instructors and students. Instructors will find PowerPoint slides and test banks to aid in conducting their courses, and students can access a library of helpful learning activities, suggested readings and resources, and a glossary of important terms.

Review:

"This outstanding volume represents a comprehensive and scholarly guide for anyone with interests in the evolution of the Community Mental Health movement, its current status, and a vision of what we might expect in the near future. The internationally known authors of this second edition of Community Mental Health offer insightful analyses of challenges we face in our evolving health care landscape and provide innovative and creative solutions that have the capacity to transform the way we extend mental health services." - Leonard A. Jason, Director, Center for Community Research, DePaul University

"In Community Mental Health: Challenges for the 21st Century, Jessica Rosenberg and Samuel Rosenberg provide a comprehensive overview of the most up-to-date research on best practices in community mental health in today’s culture and political climate. The quality of information that this book provides is strengthened by the unique contributions of experts from numerous mental health-focused disciplines, including social work, psychiatry, psychology, nursing, public health and law. Infused into each chapter is an emphasis on the importance of addressing the stigma associated with mental health concerns and promoting a recovery philosophy that empowers individuals to pursue lives that go beyond simply resigning themselves to living unresponsively with mental illness." - Adam Miller, The Professional Counselor

"The editors have presented a comprehensive view of community mental health in this volume that expands upon the previous edition. The chapters capture an array of timely topics presented by experts. One finds in the pages of this forward looking book that mental health needs and practices are defined for the present and into the future. This is a must read for mental health professionals." - Peter B. Vaughan, PhD, Professor and Dean, Graduate School of Social Service, Fordham University
