4.0 out of 5 stars a lively collection of articles on Mental Health issues, 2 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Mental Health Still Matters (0) (Paperback)
I have not read the entire book but that is not important because it is a collection of short articles written around various aspects of the Mental Health reality. The book is the reference material for 2 of my lectures in a Post Graduate Diploma course. I then had a lecture with one of the authors which made both the course and material feel very current and pertinent to today's dialogue and diatribe around Mental Health. Bite sized discourse on large topics make for fine jumping off points for further research. I will refer to this book for its bibliography references at the end of each article as much as for the actual article. Some of the articles are controversial, and many written in the first person; and that is refreshing after having read so much academic and low key material.

From the back cover: "Part I discusses and critiques mental health theory in an exploration of contemporary debates. PartII considers social inclusion as a goal for mental health services and reviews aspects of the services in which inequality continues to dominate. PartIII offers accounts of mental distress by service users, many of whom have used their experience to become teachers, researchers and innovators in mental health work. PartIV considers some of the challenges faced by practitioners alongside professional responses to the major changes seen in the landscape of mental health."
