"This book is an indispensable collection of the best thinking on the critical role of housing to the community and civic integration of people with behavioral health disabilities. Supported housing is the essential corrective for the post-deinstitutionalization era, and this book provides a thorough overview by experts in the field of its history, function, and importance to creating social inclusion."--Dennis Culhane, PhD, Dana and Andrew Stone Professor of Social Policy, University of Pennsylvania
"This book is an important and much-needed contribution to the literature. Reflecting community psychology at its best, the authors expertly map the complex terrain of housing and social inclusion for persons with serious mental illness."--Deborah K. Padgett, PhD, MPH, Professor, Silver School of Social Work, New York University
"As we embrace recovery, social inclusion, and citizenship for people with serious mental illness, it becomes critical that we appreciate the history, underlying theories, and research evidence supporting existing housing models and support interventions. This book offers a timely, comprehensive, and critical review of the field and becomes an indispensable resource for planners, practitioners, and our communities as they consider the range of housing and support options needed to advance the health and human rights of this population."--Vicky Stergiopoulos, MD, Physician-in-Chief, Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, and Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Toronto
"The consistently positive statements about Housing First and the various thoughts about more integrated citizenship for persons with serious mental illness make this a valuable contribution that should be of particular interest to policy makers, academics, and theorists with an interest in the plight of persons with serious mental illness." --PsycCRITIQUES
"If you would like to read just one comprehensive, well-written book to get a good understanding of current research and discussions dealing with housing in the community mental health field, I strongly suggest Housing, Citizenship, and Communities for People with Serious Mental Illness. Theory, Research, Practice and Policy Perspectives...it can be read as both an interdisciplinary and profound compilation of housing in the community and as a forceful promotion of Housing First. Maybe this is why the book seems to offer something insightful for every reader for various purposes." --FEANTSA
"In recent years, housing has become a key factor in supporting homeless individuals with SMI in their recovery and journey towards social inclusion and citizenship in our communities. Changes to the mental health system, practice, and policy are emerging and a shift towards focusing on single and scatter site supportive housing for this population is becoming prevalent. Housing, Citizenship, and Communities for People with Serious Mental Illness provides a seamless route to navigating these changes and highlights the pivotal role housing has for people with SMI, their ability to feel socially connected to their communities, and the capacity for citizenship opportunities. The scope of this text is to provide practitioners, researchers, and policymakers a comprehensive overview of housing approaches for people with SMI." --Journal of Evidence-Informed Social Work
