The chapters in this book testify to a field that is vibrant, growing, and making a significant contribution to bettering the lives of people with serious mental illness. Since deinstitutionalization, too many people with serious mental illness have experienced social isolation, marginalization, and poverty; problems that persist today. There are a number of causes including inappropriate and ineffective treatment, stigma, and inadequate support. Other noteworthy causes have been the lack of or the poor quality of, housing in the community. There is reason to hope that this is changing. This chapter summarizes common findings and themes across the chapters in the book, and provides some suggestions for moving forward, in theory, research, practice, and policy.
