From Epidemiology to Mental Health Action
Edited by Itzhak Levav
Psychiatric epidemiological research in Israel has been thriving over the years. In recent decades it has expanded its concerns from treated populations to community-based studies. As attested by this volume, Israeli epidemiological studies cover multiple mental health domains. Thanks to contributions by leading interdisciplinary researchers from academia and the health services, the reader now has at his/her fingertips a full and updated overview of the epidemiology of psychiatric and behavioral disorders in Israel. The information presented is of central relevance for mental health action in the areas of promotion and prevention and, especially, for curative care as well as rehabilitation.
