SAGE Publications, Apr 21, 1998 - Medical - 448 pages
In this volume, authorities from around the United States and from a variety of perspectives analyze and discuss key topics in women's mental health, including empowerment, substance abuse, severe mental illness and interpersonal violence.
Issues examined in the first part focus on service delivery - for example, the organizational structure of service delivery, gender and racial service disparities, and challenges women face as mental health administrators. Contributors to Part Two explore special issues and populations, including women who have survived trauma such as sexual abuse, and women with mental disorders who are in prison.
