AIDS and People with Severe Mental Illness: A Handbook for Mental Health Professionals by Cournos M.D., Francine

While HIV spreads among people with severe mental illness for the same reasons it does in the general population, there are specific ways in which mental illness is associated with elevated HIV risk. Every mental health institution or program has to deal with the consequences of increased HIV rates, but until now there has been no single book that could tell them how to do so. AIDS and People with Severe Mental Illness covers the entire range of information essential for those who work with these patients: epidemiological, medical, psychological, legal, ethical, and policy issues are all examined by eminent authorities in those areas. Nurses, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health administrators, forensic specialists, and others involved in the care of people with severe mental illness will find here exactly what they have been looking for: one handbook that can help them deal with the challenges the AIDS epidemic has set before them.--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
