This book covers the key areas of contemporary mental health practice and is ideal for those in the early stages of their mental health training. The text is organized into three parts. Part I (Foundations) covers the Ten Shared Capabilities, a framework that has been developed by the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health as a framework for the whole of the mental health workforce. Part II (Issues) includes chapters on socially inclusive practice, service user involvement, interdisciplinary team working, and working with families. Finally, Part III (Approaches) includes chapters on psychological approaches, medication management, holistic approaches, and spirituality and mental health. This is a student text accompanying "Teaching Mental Health" (catalogue number 25898).
