"Having been medical director of an assertive community treatment team providing community-based intensive outreach services to homeless mentally ill adults, I recognize how daring, innovative, and on target are some of the alternatives to the hospital for acute psychiatric treatment described in this volume.... The book is a valuable resource for administrators, insurers, clinicians, and consumers involved in program development and clinical care."-- "Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease"
"In any case, this book should be read by all clinicians of all disciplines in private practice and community mental health centers. So many community programs offer treatment for long-term chronic mental illness, not crisis treatment. This book proves that creative, inexpensive programs can replace the hospital for the acute treatment of many individuals. It is a pleasure to read about such wonderfully resourceful work."-- "Psychiatric Services"
"Planners and clinicians both will enjoy this book. It gives the right examples of how this can be done from around the world."-- "Community Mental Health Journal"
