Overview

This is a practical, no-nonsense book designed to help managers of mental health services cope, survive and constructively fulfil their role. It has been written to help managers to function in an increasingly complex mental health service arena. In clear, jargon-free language it aims to demystify key managerial terms, to provide an understandable summary of the relevant policy and legal framework, and to provide signposts to assist managers in making their way through the maze of service planning and service development options. Managing Mental Health Services will be a leading practical handbook in its field, a point of reference for hands-on managers, and a source of stimulating advice, tips and guidance in mental health service management.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Recognizing that mental health staff come from a variety of backgrounds, Reynolds, a manager and psychiatric nurse, and Thornicroft, a psychiatrist working for the Bethlem and Maudsley National Health Service Trust, wrote this book in jargon-free language for use by all managers of mental health services, regardless of their medical or business background. The book lays out steps for developing manageable mental health services, such as writing the strategic service plan, and the key managerial tasks, such as managing budgets, to address the most common concerns of modern mental health managers.
