"This should be of interest not only to those in the mental health professions who are committed to the practice and investigation of social psychiatry but to all who are engaged in the mental health system irrespective of their theoretical persuasions." (Transcultural Psychiatry, July 2011)

"Since it is claimed that depression is the fourth most common cause of health-related disability, there is a perceived need for effective psychological interventions that can be delivered within the community on a large scale. Low-cost ways of reducing the financial and human burden of common mental disorders are thoroughly explored in this book."(International Journal of Social Psychiatry, 2011)

"The chapter by Dinesh Bhugra and Susham Gupta on culture and its influence on diagnosis and management could be a useful free-standing training manual for mental health professionals working in a cross-cultural or multicultural setting" (International Journal of Social Psychiatry, 2011)
