I wish I had bought this book at the start of my nursing degree rather than at the end of nearly 3 years training. If you're starting a mental health nursing course get it. (amazon.co.uk reviewer)
The authors have addressed complex topics in a very informative and engaging way. The use of scenarios and on-line tests will enable achievement of the mental health competencies required of modern day practice. I believe this book has the potential to become the key text for mental health nurses. I would have no hesitation in recommending this text to mental health nursing students. (Dr Steve Tee, Senior Lecturer in Mental Health Nursing, Southampton University School of Nursing and Midwifery)
I feel this is very up to date and easy to understand. 10/10 I would give this book to any student on placement with me and to a recently qualified nurse. (Mr James Eley, Senior Community Mental Health Nurse, Norfolk and Waveney Mental health Partnership NHS Trust, UK)
It is made very clear how what the student does in placement links to standards and values set out in policy guidelines, which in turn links very clearly to their role as qualified professionals....this could be the main text for the mental health branch programme and subsequently a helpful reference text for the rest of their training. (Sattish Harbance-Singh, Lecturer and Practitioner, Salford University, UK)
