From the reviews:
"The aim of this book is to provide an introduction to CROs in mental health, review the scholarly evidence for their benefit and cost-effectiveness, and provide an insider's perspective on mental health and the process of recovery within these organizations by those who are consumers and members of them. The author identifies a wide audience, ranging from researchers of consumer-run organizations to students of psychiatry to mental health consumers. ... book ends with suggestions for research directions and includes a self-help questionnaire in the appendix." (Christopher J. Graver, Doody's Review Service, March, 2012)
"In Consumer-Run Mental Health: Framework for Recovery, Louis Brown provides a theoretical framework for consumer-run organizations (CROs) and a research model for studying consumer-driven organizations. Those who study CROs and mental health recovery will find the text to be thoughtful, well organized, and informative. Graduate students learning about psychopathology will gain a deeper and more informed understanding of mental illness and of the social impact of living with a chronic mental health condition."
