Product Description

Review

Spirituality and mental health is a very accessible title, thought-provoking and inspirational and at times hard hitting in its argument for a fuller embrace of the spiritual in the delivery of care and treatment to people having mental health illness. Richard Bryant-Jefferies Central and North West London - NHS Foundation trust Peter Gilbert has bought together a stellar team of authors and produced as close to a comprehensive text on spirituality and mental health as possible. Serious study of this volume within the NHS would surely lead to a sea change in much mental healthcare. For staff this book will be of enormous help, both in looking at particular issues, such as understanding the faith context of a specific tradition, but also in the broader understanding behind working with spirituality at all. Tony Wright, counsellor Thresholds, summer 2011 - Counselling with Spirit

Format: Paperback
I must admit I'd give my eye-teeth to be able to re-edit this book as the jewels it contains could shine even more brightly. However, it still deserves five stars for its mind-opening content and its clear acknowledgment of the importance of spirit in health. I also love the mix of philosophy, case studies, well-researched views and - yes - spirit.

The use of quotations about soul and spirit lift the text, changing its pace in a way that is very unusual in an academic work. Not only can we perceive the deep truths expressed but we are also kept entertained and uplifted. This is a style characteristic of Peter's workshop presentations and it is very attractive.

Peter Gilbert's own spiritual journey shines through, together with the stories of his companions. This book is highly recommended for anyone who cares in any way for someone with mental health issues. That spirituality is the often-forgotten missing link is clear. It is also clear that acknowleging spirit (rather than religion) in everyday care will both help explain many issues and give us more effective tools to be able to help.

As a hospice chaplain I welcome this book with open arms and I just hope its price won't put people off reading it. Perhaps an e-book version would be a very good idea?
