“Marks a turning point in the professional literature by infusing hope into the careful and comprehensive information presented about diagnoses, symptoms, and impairments that can lead to disability, while describing service approaches and the evidence to support them....If widely adopted as a college textbook, this work could reshape curricula for students planning careers in human services.”

British Journal of Hospital Medicine (on the first edition)

“This is the most comprehensive text describing the essential role of psychiatric rehabilitation in recovery-oriented mental health service delivery. The book covers a broad range of therapeutic and supportive services. Beyond skills training and individual interventions, the critical emphasis on combating stigma, increasing rights and access to resources, and advocating for equity and inclusion makes this book required reading. The text is extraordinary in its accessibility for learners at any level—especially graduate and professional students—and its relevance for courses across the mental health disciplines.”

—Mark S. Salzer, PhD, College of Public Health, Temple University, and Director, Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion

“Treatment alone is rarely sufficient to enable people who live with serious mental health conditions to achieve their goals in life. The comprehensively updated third edition of this book demonstrates the potency of psychiatric rehabilitation services and strategies for helping people achieve their goals and function in their desired community roles. The authors' focus on the principles of personhood and self-determination shines throughout.”

—Dori S. Hutchinson, ScD, Executive Director/Director of Services, Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation, Boston University

“I have used the second edition of this text in my 400-level Community Mental Health Practice and Services course, and I am elated to see the third edition! The third edition provides a thorough overview of psychiatric rehabilitation considerations within a wide array of community public health sectors and contexts at both the micro and macro levels. It provides the reader with relevant information about the most up-to-date evidence-based practices in the field. This is a 'must-have' book for any student considering entering the field of community mental health.”

—Michael B. Lavetsky, MA, LPC, NCC, Program Chair and Lecturer, Rehabilitation and Human Services Major, Penn State Abington

“This is a valuable text for graduate-level courses in multiple disciplines that deal with assessment, evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment planning for serious mental illness. The authors provide an accessible combination of theories, research, concrete examples, and interventions. The book's strengths-based perspective is cutting-edge, supportive, and, most important, patient focused.”
