Item description for Man Mental Health Care (Chronic Mental Illness, V. 4) by MINKOFF...

The rapid spread of managed care into public and community mental health systems is creating a dramatic transformation of traditional public sector settings. This radical change is affecting administrators, managers, and clinicians.
Intended as a survival manual for administrators, planners, clinicians, and consumers, this book begins with an overview of the history, concepts, ideology, and ethics of public sector managed care and then proceeds in focus from system to program management to clinical program levels. With a concluding section on advocacy, evaluation, research, and training issues, Managed Mental Health Care in the Public Sector examines how public sector managed mental health care can be approached with a positive spirit, an excitement about the potential to create dramatic and beneficial system changes, and a genuine interest in investigating the relative merits of every aspect of managed care systems.

Reviews - What do customers think about Man Mental Health Care (Chronic Mental Illness, V. 4)?

useful overview  May 10, 2006
This is a useful overview to anyone (patient, independent practitioner, non-profit, local governmental agency, university teaching mental health practitioners, or government agency) that specializes or deals with the delivery of specialty mental health care to persons with serious mental illness. It provides all the various perspectives and identifies many useful pitfalls. And (most importantly) it at least hints at several ways of providing consumer-centered health care in an increasingly managed care environment.

Perhaps the only issue I have with this book is the self-congratulatory tone of several chapters. Some of the contributors were having their contract/proposal reviewed at the time they were writing their chapters and used the chapters (in part) as a kind of "sales pitch" to the government agency. The resulting tone of "look how great and worthy of funding I am" is occasionally distracting from the very real and valuable information contained in this slim volume (including their chapters).

But despite this relatively minor quibble I can honestly say that for anyone dealing with managed mental health care this book should prove invaluable. I recommend it.
