Summary

Emerging from a qualitative research study on the rehabilitation experiences of adult male probationers with mental health illness, this book describes the treatment and rehabilitation experiences of these individuals and contextualizes their experiences within the landscape of mental health treatment in the United States. Often underserved in outpatient community support programs, probationers with mental health illness (PMIs) face stigma and obstacles in seeking mental health treatment and rehabilitation. Examining the lived experiences of both PMIs and their probation officers, this book offers insights into the study of stigma as it relates to probationers and the work of probation officers in furthering treatment and rehabilitation options for PMIs.
