This ground-breaking textbook gathers contributions from service users, expert practitioners, and leading academics to help students develop the core knowledge and skills they need to qualify as mental health nurses. Focusing in particular on helping students apply person-centered, compassionate, and recovery-focused care, service-user voices and practical case studies are integrated throughout the book. Students are also given a rounded understanding of the key debates they will face in practice through the exploration of both bio-medical and psycho-social approaches.
