Description

A comprehensive reference on mental health in Australia and internationally

Mental Health and Collaborative Community Practice: An Australian Perspective is an authoritative, comprehensive reference on the state of mental health and mental health care in Australia and internationally. It provides the latest information on descriptions of the disorders, policy, and treatments for mental illness.

The fourth edition is updated with the most recent changes to policy and practice, including incorporating the new diagnostic tool ICD-11. With a strong focus on community collaboration and recovery and through the many stories of mental health care that are woven into the descriptions of disorders and their treatments, this edition provides guidance for a more personal approach to mental health care. An extended team of authors, editors and associate editors provide their interdisciplinary perspectives and lived experience to help readers understand and connect with the broad facets of mental health care.

NEW TO THIS EDITION

  • New associate editors with lived experience of mental health problems enable accuracy and respect to how people with mental illness feel about themselves and respond to medical, psychosocial and other interventions
  • New chapters engage with issues of social determinants and needs of specific groups in the community while others extend the range of diagnoses considered
  • New examples of mental health disorders and treatment in practice including personal stories of people with a mental illness and their experience of mental health care.
