* marketing effective psychosocial treatments
* business enterprises set up to employ people with mental illness
* cognitive-behavioral therapy for psychosis
The Environment of Schizophrenis suggests practical ways to create a better world for those who suffer from this serious illness and for those who are close to them. It will prove fresh and stimulating reading for mental health managers and policy makers, as well as psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, mental health advocates, and communications specialists.
