Fourth, Modern Community Mental Health is not a comprehensive view of modern community mental health. In 621 pages, there is virtually nothing about children or transition-age youth. The elderly population is nowhere to be found, and the reader is provided no information about mental health issues in nursing homes. CIT gets a chapter, but assisted outpatient treatment does not. Managing suicide in the community gets a chapter, but managing violence does not. There’s no coverage of clubhouses. Most surprisingly, there is barely a whisper about the financing of community mental health, and it is hard to understand the practice of community mental health without at least a rudimentary understanding of such influences on the field as cost shifting from the states to the federal government through Medicaid, the exclusion of “institutions for mental disease” from Medicaid matching funds, Medicare Part D, and so forth. Nothing says this book needed to be all inclusive, but the reader should know what’s in the book and what’s not if the book is to guide the reader as the editors said it would (see my first paragraph, above).
