Mental Health Nursing is written especially for the general nursing student, and provides a comprehensive coverage of all the relevant dimensions of practice for nursing in mental health. The text is rich in nursing practice examples, fictional cases from which nursing skills are observed, and is written to be engaging and accessible for undergraduate students.
The book follows an evidence-based practice model and shows how to apply assessment processes to treatment practice, work with clients with a range of disorders, and apply nursing intervention strategies in order to achieve best practice outcomes.
