About this Book

Mental Health Care: An Introduction for Health Professionals in Australia, 2nd edition is the ideal resource for students who will be future health professionals working in allied health and medical environments in Australia. Set firmly within a wellness framework the text is also useful for health professionals, already working in a health-related field, who need information to support them to effectively assist people who experience mental health problems.

Drawing on the multidisciplinary expertise of Australia's pre-eminent academics and clinicians, the text offers a user-friendly, jargon-free blend of theory and practice that will enable students to think carefully about the issues involved in mental health care and empower them to develop strategies for working effectively with people across the lifespan and from diverse cultures. Building on the success of the first edition, Mental Health Care: An Introduction for Health Professionals, 2nd edition has been bolstered with an increased focus on coverage of child and adolescent mental health issues.
