9780789034106: Hiv: Issues with Mental Health and Illness

Learn why it’s time for a new era in mental health and prevention science

HIV: Issues with Mental Health and Illness is a comprehensive examination of the co-morbidity that exists between HIV/AIDS and mental illness. Internationally recognized experts in the field analyze the latest research on why HIV sufferers are at risk of developing mental illness and how people who suffer from mental illness risk contracting HIV through sexual behavior and substance abuse. This unique book focuses on clinical and diagnostic issues, the organization of service delivery systems, and community-based interventions.

HIV: Issues with Mental Health and Illness presents vital contributions from physicians, sociologists, nurses, social workers, and psychologists working to develop a plan to reduce the number of persons affected by the epidemic, and to improve the quality of life of those already HIV infected. Aimed at promoting a new era in mental health and prevention science, the book examines vital issues including: the interplay between depression, HIV, and chronic fatigue; condom use among adolescents with psychiatric disorders; predicting HIV risk and how targeted intervention can address multiple health risks; how an increase in emotional stress can affect African-American women concerned about becoming HIV infected; STI risk reduction strategies; how client gender can affect mental health care service delivery; and the implementation of intervention programs as part of supported housing programs.

HIV: Issues with Mental Health and Illness examines:

  • bridging the gap between research and practice
  • depression and HIV
  • schizophrenia and HIV
  • mental health policy and infectious diseases
  • HIV prevention
  • community-based participatory research
  • community psychology
  • mental health disparities
  • translation research
  • transforming public health systems
HIV: Issues with Mental Health and Illness is an invaluable resource for public health workers and policymakers, psychologists, psychiatrists, social work nurses, infectious disease physicians, and addictions disease counselors.

Review:

A HOME RUN! Blank and Eisenberg have assembled a stellar cast of contributors to address an understudied area of emerging significance in HIV prevention. The volume is a unique blend of breadth and depth that students, practitioners, and researchers will find invaluable. A "MUST HAVE" for anyone seriously interested in the area of mental health and HIV." -- Ralph DiClemente, PhD, Charles Howard Candler Professor, Rollins School of Public Health at Emory

Much less well-understood or even discussed is the complex, multidirectional relationships between mental health status, HIV serostatus, HIV-related risk behaviors, and substance use. This volume--with chapters written by leaders in the field and expertly edited by Blank and Eisenberg--PROVIDES CRITICAL AND NEW INSIGHTS into these key relationships. -- David Holtgrave, PhD, Professor and Chair, Department of Health, Behavior & Society, Bloomberg School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins University

Since the earliest days of the epidemic we've known that HIV is connected directly with co-occurring epidemics such as substance abuse, depression, violence and other serious mental health problems. . . . Drs. Blank and Eisenberg have PROVIDED AN IMPORTANT SERVICE in their book HIV: Issues with Mental Health and Illness by focusing on how these interconnecting epidemics amplify each other and make treatment decisions more difficult. -- Ron Stall, PhD, MPY, Professor and Assistant Dean, Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh

The heuristic value of this edited volume is AS SUBSTANTIAL AS IT IS SUBTLE! The findings of each of the studies reported raise important questions in their own right. Appreciation of the complexity and interrelationships among these questions, however, grows as other chapters are read and findings are woven into a quilt of increasing understanding of the jeopardy of having an SMI in a world marked by STIs including HIV. -- Raymond P. Lorion, PhD, Dean, College of Education, Towson University, Editor, Journal of Community Psychology
