Spirituality and Religion in Recovery from Mental Illness: New Directions for Mental Health Services, Number 80
December 1998, Jossey-Bass
The authors describe innovative collaborations among faith communities, mental health organizations and agencies, and people with mental illness--and offer specific guidelines for developing such relationships more fully. They also review existing research that demonstrates a positive connection between spirituality and well-being and suggest future directions for increasing the integration of spirituality into mental health services.
This is the 80th issue of the quarterly journal New Directions for Mental Health Services.
