It covers mental health issues and includes important new epidemiological studies, controlled clinical trials, and other investigations that inform the new thrust for evidence-based mental health services. It also covers cutting-edge new information on disparities in mental health care coverage, pharmaceutical companies and the marketing of drugs, PTSD in the wake of the Iraq war and 9/11, the Surgeon General Report on Mental health, the Bush New Freedom commission, and the criminalization of mental illness.
