Health and Mental Health Care Policy: A Biopsychosocial Perspective

August, 2010

Third Edition. Cynthia Moniz, chair of the department of social work and professor of social work; and Stephen Gorin, professor of social work

According to Moniz, this text “provides a historical and political overview of health care reform in the U.S. and the need to achieve universal coverage, but it also suggests that universal access and good doctors and hospitals aren’t enough. We need to address social problems of all kinds—substance abuse, teen pregnancy, violence, and especially poverty, which is linked to so many social problems—if we want to become a healthier society.”
