University of Minnesota School of Public Health Mental Health Initiatives

Dr. Donna McAlpine, associate professor in the division of health policy and management and director of the MPH program in public health administration and policy, is coauthor of the most recent edition of Mental Health and Social Policy, the standard text for mental health policy students. The textbook got media attention for, among other topics, the questions it raised about the best use of funds for mental health; the new categories in DSM-5, the latest manual from the American Psychiatric Association that classifies mental disorders; and the limitations of preventive psychiatry, including screening programs.
