Mental Health Nursing

A Manual for Practice

This exciting new book offers a contemporary manual for the mental health nurse within a mental health care system that is increasingly focused on recovery. Mental Health Nursing incorporates recent policy changes that place a greater emphasis on person-centred and social caring, whilst retaining a strong evidence base. The holistic, skills-based approach helps the student and the beginning practitioner to understand the complex causation of mental illness, its diagnosis, effective interventions and treatments, and the client’s experience of mental illness.
