About the Book

The use of seatbelts, the requirements for smoke detectors, and other kinds of public health interventions have been highly successful in reducing disability, injuries, and premature mortality. Prevention in mental health-- identifying and treating mental illnesses before they become full blown syndromes or identifying people at risk for a condition--is just as critical to public mental health. This research-based resource gives practitioners a nuts-and-bolts guide to designing and evaluating prevention programs in mental health that are culturally relevant and aimed at reducing the number of new problems that occur.

  • Promotes hands-on learning with practical exercises, instructive figures, and a comprehensive reference list


Intended Audience
