Review of first edition:

"Although there are a number of books of this nature, this book is clearly in a superior league, and is presented in a format which is easily read and accessible…It is very difficult to find criticism with this book as it serves to explore countless aspects providing a wealth of research, case studies and current policies and service provision… A must for all students."

Mental Health Practice

"Editors Ian Norman and Iain Ryrie are to be congratulated for putting together a book that covers the diversity of mental health nursing. The contributors offer a range of theoretical perspectives. The coverage is comprehensive and the book is very readable. This book will appeal to students of mental health nursing, qualified practitioners and nurse educators. Managers will also find it a useful reference."

Alister Campbell, Nurse Consultant, Bucknall Hospital, Staffordshire.

"A few [chapters] stand out: the chapter on law and ethics deals with difficult issues around compulsory detention and human rights in a clear and helpful way. And the chapter on physical health and serious mental health concisely brings together a large body of information ... I would recommend this book as an adjunct to other books on mental health nursing."

Mental Health Today (April 2010)

This second edition has been extensively revised to incorporate changes to the UK policy context of mental health nursing, the legal framework of mental health care and the 2006 Chief Nursing Officer’s Review of Mental Health Nursing, From Values to Action. Throughout the text, readers are encouraged to draw upon the evidence base to inform the delivery of high quality mental health care.

New to this edition:

• Seven new chapters:

• Physical health care and serious mental illness

• The person with dementia

• Future directions in mental health promotion and public mental health

• Service improvement

• Strategies for living and lifestyle options

• Self help and mental health

• Future directions: taking recovery into society

Key features:

• Written by an expert group of clinicians and researchers drawn from a range of disciplines

• Provides readers with an authoritative account of mental health care policies and practice

• Integrates service-users’ views and highlights the role of nurses in helping them find meaning and purpose

• Emphasises the importance of understanding lifestyle interventions to promote mental health and the public health role of the mental health nurse

• Case studies are integrated throughout the text to illustrate the practical application of the material

• Superb pedagogy aids learning though overviews, conclusions, questions for reflection and discussion, as well as an annotated bibliography guiding the reader towards more detailed reading
