Mobility and Mental Health is an outstanding collection of articles stemming from the Fifth Annual Conference on Community Mental Health Research held at the Social Science Institute of Washington University in 1963. The book is divided into two parts; the first part contains original research papers from a number of disciplines directed toward several aspects of mobility. The second part of the book consists of three short discussion papers and a summary statement.
The aspects of mobility covered are migration and social mobility. Migration is related to the major mental disorders, as discussed by H. B. M. Murphy in a review of pertinent data from several countries. W. E. Henry discusses social mobility from the standpoint of the social learning involved, identifying sociological criteria for successful social mobility, tying these to individual motivation and to group supported values in an interesting and thought provoking manner.
