Product Overview

Until fairly recently, womens mental health and the services that address it have suffered serious neglect in the research literature. This new volume is intended to fill this information void. In Womens Mental Health Services, authorities from around the country and from a variety of perspectives take on such key topics as empowerment, substance abuse, severe mental illness, and interpersonal violence as they relate to women. In Part I, the contributors examine service delivery organization, gender and racial service disparities, and challenges for women as mental health administrators. Part II looks at empowerment issues, severe mental illness and trauma, and at-risk populations among women.

Addressing some of the most recent research and programs in womens mental health care, Womens Mental Health Services provides the advanced-level student with a broad survey of the activity in this underserved area and brings busy community and mental health providers up-to-date on the work of many of their colleagues.

Bruce Lubotsky Levin is editor of the Journal of Behavioral Health Services and Research and Associate Professor at the Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute and College of Public Health, University of South Florida. Andrea K. Blanch is Associate Commissioner for Programs, and Ann Jennings is Director of Trauma Recovery Services, Maine Department of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse Services.
