Summary This edited volume explores the field of community mental health from the perspective of community psychology. The focus of the book is on the transformation of the field of mental health from professional practice rooted in a biomedical model to a new approach based on community psychology values and the principles of ecology, collaboration, empowerment, and social justice. The book is divided into several sections: theoretical perspectives, consumer participation, practice, community inclusion, social conditions, and social policy
