This eighth book in the Prevention Practice Kit provides a broad overview of the types of policies governments establish to prevent mental disorders as well as the various ways in which these policies are created. The authors describe the process of analyzing public programs, laws, policies, and managerial innovations in mental disorder prevention, and help readers examine both the rationale for these programs and policies and whether or not they really work.
