Unfortunately, according to the authors represented in Community-Based Interventions for Criminal Offenders With Severe Mental Illness, diversion is not that simple, and there are many limitations to the complex issue. The multidisciplinary authors of this work write to a broad audience—the fields of psychiatry, psychology, public health, social work, and sociology. Novice and expert readers alike will find valuable information here. The authors provide readers with current research on the intersection of offenders with mental illness, community mental health treatment, and the criminal justice system. Specific topics include case management, jail diversion, new-generation antipsychotics, forensic psychiatry, mental health courts, and institutions such as prisons and hospitals.
