Reviews
Review Quotes
"While a great deal of work remains to be done regarding prevention of psychiatric disorders, much has been learned in recent years. In this volume, Compton and his contributors provide a dispassionate review of the current state of knowledge about prevention of an array of mental disorders. The book makes a compelling case that clinicians should consider prevention an appropriate part of clinical practice."- Mark R. Munetz, M.D., Professor and Margaret Clark Morgan Endowed Chair of Psychiatry, Northeastern Ohio Universities Colleges of Medicine and Pharmacy
"This excellent book accomplishes the difficult task of efficiently and effectively condensing and presenting a great deal of information about preventive care in mental health, which often is an overlooked area of practice. The editor and the numerous authors both educate and equip readers to use evidence-based practices in the care of their patients. This topic is covered sporadically in other books and journals, but no other book has efficiently collected the information in one place. This book would be very effective in helping healthcare providers who strive to provide the best care for their patients."- Doody Enterprises, Inc., Aaron Plattner, M.D. , July 2010
This book provides some outstanding examples of prevention strategies that psychiatrists can learn from, and these exemplars should improve the practice of medicine, better aligning psychiatry with public health. Each chapter ends with key points that help clarify the vital elements of each topic area.
"This book provides some outstanding examples of prevention strategies that psychiatrists can learn from, and these exemplars should improve the practice of medicine, better aligning psychiatry with public health. Each chapter ends with key points that help clarify the vital elements of each topic area."- The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, Carl C. Bell, MD , October 2010
"Dr. Compton and colleagues more than fulfilled their ambition to provide a manual "to encourage mental health professionals to adopt prevention-mindedness into their everyday practice with patients and in their collaborations with community organizations and agencies that may have a role to play in prevention efforts." They have created a valuable resource that would also be beneficial for mental health system architects and funders, including the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, National Institute of Mental Health, National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors, and state and regional mental health system leaders."- Yad M. Jabbarpour, M.D., Psychiatric Services , May 2010
