"For anyone who works actively providing mental health service to people who are deaf, this book provides the benchmark by which they can measure success of their labors. For people who administer mental health programs that serve the deaf, this book is one of the most important publications in the past 20 years. If the deafness and mental health professional could have only one book on their bookshelf, this should be it, preferably well-worn, dog-eared, and falling apart from the frequent use made of it." - JADRA

"Mental Health Care of Deaf People makes a significant contribution of exceptionally clear thinking about the intersection of culture and mental health services....they provide a multitude of excellent examples of clinicians doing good work and thinking daily about what they do and why they do it." - Contemporary Psychology

"It is clear that all the authors base their work on sound theoretical foundations....this is a book that managers of deaf services, or general health provisions where deaf people may be present, would be wise to read. In summary, it is a great book to get your teeth into, with a great CD-ROM." - Deafness and Education International

"The editors of this excellent and exceptional book weave a variety of interdisciplinary and culturally informed viewpoints. A remarkable feature of this book is the level of concrete details, including a CD that contained many of the forms and psychosocial rehabilitation tools the Westborough State Hospital uses in working with people who have limited language or conceptual capacities." - Psychiatric Services
