Summary:This volume introduces reader to mental health practice in community settings. 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. In their coverage of each topic the authors focus on shifting the focus from management to recovery in the treatment of chronically mentally ill patients. New chapters address best practices with distinct populations of clients, including veterans, children and youth, Latinos, and those affected by the Great Recession. The target audience is 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.
