Summary

Mental illness is a growing concern in the United States, and one which needs to be examined at the community level; not just on an individual basis. Professionals working in community health situations need to have an understanding of community mental health in order to assess and help prevent illness and develop, implement and evaluate social programs to help with the escalating problems related to mental illness. The book provides comprehensive coverage of various community mental health problems and ways to address them. Community problems that are escalating in our country, such as violence and substance abuse will be covered in great detail and model programs will be spotlighted. This text serves as a comprehensive guide for community health and public health professionals. Instructor Resources, including PowerPoint Presentations, a TestBank, and an Instructor Manual are available as free downloads.
