Description

This revised and expanded third edition text utilizes a public health framework and the latest epidemiological, treatment, and service systems research to promote a comprehensive understanding of the organization, financing, and delivery of mental health and substance abuse services in the United States. Written by national experts in the field, this timely work will provide policymakers, administrators, clinicians, and public health and behavioral health graduate students with the knowledge base needed to manage and transform mental health service systems, both nationally and locally. The book is unique in providing a public health framework of the most significant issues facing mental health policy makers, administrators, planners, and practitioners. It combines issues (e.g., evaluation; law; ethnicity) that extend across different age groups, treatment settings, and disorders, with issues that are population and disorder specific. The publication of this book is timely for those involved with the debate over national health care reform legislation, and provides important and timely information (on populations at-risk for mental disorders, services, and systems issues) for those responsible for implementing policies and programs resulting from this reform effort.show more

Review quote

"Our ever-expanding knowledge base in mental health and substance abuse challenges clinicians and administrators to stay up-to-date on the latest research and services to benefit consumers and families. This outstanding book highlights and synthesizes research and service delivery innovations in ways that are both practical and actionable for today's - and tomorrow's - providers." -- Linda Rosenberg, MSW President & Chief Executive Officer National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare"With dramatic changes on the horizon in the way we finance and deliver health and mental health care in this country, we must look to build upon what is already known about providing effective, high quality mental health services. This exceptional book consolidates that knowledge, and should be required reading for anyone designing or implementing health reform changes within public health or mental health systems." --David L. Shern, Ph.D. President and CEO Mental Health America "Our ever-expanding knowledge base in mental health and substance abuse challenges clinicians and administrators to stay up-to-date on the latest research and services to benefit consumers and families. This outstanding book highlights and synthesizes research and service delivery innovations in ways that are both practical and actionable for today's - and tomorrow's - providers." --Linda Rosenberg, Chief Executive Officer, National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare "The Third Edition of Mental Health Services: A Public Health Perspective provides an excellent "on stop shop" for anyone entering the mental health field and needing to get a comprehensive grounding on mental health care delivery systems. The volume represents an unusually rich gathering of the perspectives of scholars and high level practitioners. This volume is a must read for faculty, researchers, and policy makers who are engaging in issues of mental health delivery." --Richard G. Frank, Ph.D., Professor, Harvard University and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services "The challenge of producing a single volume covering the broad scope of content implied by the title of this book is daunting. Mental Health Services: A Public Health Perspective (Third Edition) meets this challenge by tapping the expertise of nationally known experts in a carefully designed collection of chapters addressing key aspects of mental health services... In summary, this volume makes a substantial contribution and will be a welcome resource for both experts in mental health services and for students and other newcomers to the field." -- Elizbeth L. Merrick, PhD, and Constance M. Horgan, ScD, The Journal of Behavioral Health Services & Researchshow more
