The text has 20 chapters organized into four parts: Service Delivery Issues, Selected Populations at Risk (children and adolescents, adults, older adults, substance abuse), Special Issues, and Managing Mental Health Systems. The book’s greatest strengths are quality of the contributors (all are major leaders in each of the domains selected) and the broad range of disciplines represented. The greatest weaknesses are the lack of a cohesive vision and insufficient linkages among the chapters. As a result, a student would not really get the big picture. To try to remedy this often encountered problem in multiauthored texts, the editors had most authors include a section at the end of each chapter titled Implications for Mental Health Services. However, no consistent framework is discernible for how the authors determined the implications, and the sections often seem tacked on.
