Welcome!

This is the companion website for Community Mental Health: Challenges for the 21st Century. This new edition of the text, edited by Jessica Rosenberg and Samuel Rosenberg, presents the major trends, best practices, and policy issues shaping community mental health (CMH) services today.

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. 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 will find this text to be an invaluable resource in their training and work.
