An Introduction to Mental Health

by Jo Augustus

An Introduction to Mental Health

Jo Augustus

Overview

Today, mental health isn't the taboo subject it used to be, with many of us more aware of and willing to talk about it than ever before. As the idea of 'holistic health' − looking after the health of the whole person rather than separate parts − has grown, understanding mental health principles is no longer only necessary for psychiatrists and therapists.

As lecturers at the University of Worcester, authors Jo Augustus, Justine Bold, and Briony Williams have many years of experience as practitioners in mental health care. Aimed at students of medicine and health care professionals working in non-mental health care settings, this book covers all aspects of mental health care provision as well as its historical development. Health care practitioners, social workers, teachers, and more will find that understanding mental health principles enables them to provide better care.

"Policy, care and treatment for people with mental health problems has been a combination of compassion, fear and control since written records began."
