Summary:
"Prevention research has traditionally focused on preventive interventions tied to specific disorders, e.g., substance abuse, conduct disorders, or criminality. This produced "silos" of isolated knowledge about the prevention of individual disorders but not about interventions that work across disorders. This handbook is the first to comprehensively describe current research and practice in mental health prevention programs that is organized around comprehensive prevention systems that reach across all disorders and all institutions within a community. Throughout the book preventive interventions are seen as a necessary component of effective mental health programs, not as a replacement for therapeutic interventions"--Provided by publisher.
