Alternative Services in Community Mental Health: Programs and Processes
More than 50 percent of mental health center caseloads involve individuals who could be helped outside the traditional clinic setting. This book is the first to outline procedures for expanding local mental health programs by adding nonclinical services: individualized tutorial or group education, social rehabilitation and self-help group experiences, and case management services. The authors present a convincing case for these less costly, but equally effective, methods of treatment.
