Description

Vulnerable populations typically present with multiple overlapping issues, such as poverty, substance abuse, mental illness, or other health issues that require varying services and treatments. Service Delivery for Vulnerable Populations, New Directions in Behavioral Health provides students and professionals in health care and service delivery with innovative programs and models to address the needs of these vulnerable populations.

This essential text offers new approaches to program design, service delivery, evaluation, and funding. Strategies for introducing these innovations-such as cross-system coordination and blended funding-are described in detail, using real, evidence-based programs from around the country as examples. Experts from across program delivery systems, as well as from academia and government, share their practice experience.

"[This book is] the perfect primer for anyone seeking to understand the latest trends in psychiatric care for vulnerable people today."

Ted Houghton Supportive Housing Network of New York

"It is rare for a single book to discuss innovative practices that affect such a broad array of vulnerable groups, including children and families, older people and people with severe mental illness. Together, these essays allow readers to identify similarities and differences with regard to the needs of these populations, the conditions that may exacerbate their problems, and the adequacy of the programs and services designed to address their needs. It also may help readers identify lessons from innovations targeted at one group that may be helpful in another policy arena."
