For upper-level and graduate-level courses in Sociology of Mental Health, Medical Sociology, and Psychiatric Sociology taught in Sociology departments, as well as courses in Social Work, Psychology, and Nursing.

A Sociology of Mental Illness summarizes mental health research conducted by sociologists over the past 30 years. It is the only book on the market that provides a theoretically consistent narrative across topic areas; it uses the stress model to explain that mental illness/distress is related to social status and social roles. This theme is repeated from chapter to chapter, making it easier to assimilate the sociological approach.
