Culture and the Restructuring of Community Mental Health


Vega and Murphy examine treatment, organizational planning, and research issues and offer a critique of the theoretical and programmatic aspects of providing mental health services to traditionally underserved populations. Focusing on minority groups, the book uses the case of Hispanics to illustrate the largely-unaddressed need for services that are relevant to groups with diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. This discussion of the requirements for a socially responsible and community-based services delivery program lays the theoretical foundation for a future mental health system.
