More About This Textbook

Overview

We are proud to announce that this book is joint winner of the EHMA Baxter Award 2007.



"A genuinely fantastic resourse; such a rare text that provides such factual information for students and lecturers. A rich review of the subject areas from across Europe. Fantastic text."

Chris Kelly, Programme Leader, Bournemouth University



"Mental Health Policy and Practice Across Europe is a fascinating, complicated volume that looks at one of the key dimensions of contemporary mental health policy development in Europe — the role of the European Union (EU)."

Medicine Weekly



In much of Europe it remains taboo to discuss the challenges that poor mental health raises for governments, societies and particularly for people with mental health problems themselves.



This book maps the current state of policy, service provision and funding for mental health care across Europe, taking into account the differing historical contexts that have shaped both the development and delivery of services. A holistic approach is adopted that aims to assess the influence on mental health of environmental factors such as housing, poverty, employment, social justice and displacement.



Covering a wide range of policy issues, the book:

• Examines the legal rights of people with mental health problems

• Addresses the impact of stigma, social exclusion and discrimination

• Reviews the role of users and their families in the development of mental health services and policy

• Reflects on approaches to reform and on the future development of services

• Evaluates opportunities for the rehabilitation of people with mental health problems

• Discusses the financing and organisation of mental health systems

• Reflects on approaches to reform and the future development of services

Mental Health Policy and Practice Across Europe is key reading for policy makers, professionals involved in the delivery of health and social care services, voluntary agencies, non-governmental organizations, academics and students of health policy.
