Mental Health Case Management: A Practical Guide represents the first modern guide designed to provide students and practitioners with a grounded and practical tutorial on the key functions of a case manager serving adults with severe mental illness. The guide is purposely devoid of extensive theoretical and historical discourse, and rather focuses on a direct and to-the-point approach that time-pressed readers will appreciate when learning the fundamentals of providing mental health case management.

Shaun M. Eack, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Social Work. Dr. Eack is a mental health intervention researcher who has had over a decade of experience in working with individuals with severe mental illness, and has published extensively in this area, particularly with regard to the treatment of schizophrenia. He directs an actively funded program at the University of Pittsburgh on the treatment of severe mental illness supported by the National Institutes of Health.

Carol M. Anderson is Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh. Susan Stewart is Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh.
