Additional Book Details

Mental Health Case Management: A Practical Guide represents the first modern guide designed to provide students and practitioners with a grounded and practical tutorial on the key functions of a case manager serving adults with severe mental illness. The guide is purposely devoid of extensive theoretical and historical discourse, and rather focuses on a direct and to-the-point approach that time-pressed readers will appreciate when learning the fundamentals of providing mental health case management. Within this work, readers will learn the ABC′s of mental health case management ranging from likely psychiatric conditions their clients will experience to working with the local and federal disability systems. This information is captured within a strengths-based, recovery-oriented framework that places empowerment and the dignity of the client being served at the forefront of the delivery of excellent care, and is intended to be augmented with field experience and close supervision by expert case managers. By the end of reading this guide, students and practitioners should have a clear understanding of the foundation principles of mental health case management and knowledge of how to implement these principles into effective practice.
