"Immensely uplifting... packed with current, integrated information. What is striking is how far mental health has moved from the medical model. This is all handled sensitively in a reader-friendly style. Peter Gilbert and his colleagues draw in the reader by using succinct quotes from research and personal experiences, including Gilbert's own... I thoroughly recommend this book, for those who may only have time to read short sections to reinforce their own values or those who are working with people who have a mental illness and want to remind themselves of core social work values and some of the reasons they may be doing this work." --Professional Social Work
"Peter Gilbert, who has both edited and written several chapters in this book, has risen to the challenge by identifying universal themes and values in mental health social work, which transcend the political hues of different governments. At the same time this book, which is a new edition of Gilbert's acclaimed publication from 2003, contains up-to-date information on developments relevant to this area of social work... With a new government in power that seems determined to implement massive cuts in public services, social work will certainly be presented with enormous challenges - the amount of people who come into contact with the profession is likely to rise while the numbers of social workers may decrease. This book reasserts the importance of social work in modern society, and should be read not only by social workers and social work students, but also by anyone who needs to understand how the role of social work can address mental health issues and the needs and aspirations of people who experience mental health difficulties. Rating: Essential Reading." --Toby Williamson, head of development and later life, Mental Health Foundation, in Mental Health Today

THE TEXT SIZE IN THIS BOOK IS RIDICULOUSLY SMALL IN PLACES. I WOULD COMPARE IT WITH 'ARIAL' 'SIZE 6' IN AN MS WORD DOCUMENT. My eyes are not the best, but they are overly strained trying to read this book.
A disappointing order from RHP, will stick to the Learning Matters PQ series next time.
