9780415414876: Mental Health in a Multi-Ethnic Society: A Multidisciplinary Handbook

This new edition of Mental Health in a Multi-Ethnic Society is an authoritative, comprehensive guide on issues around race, culture and mental health service provision. It has been updated to reflect the changes in the UK over the last ten years and features entirely new chapters by over twenty authors, expanding the range of topics by including issues of particular concern for women, family therapy, and mental health of refugees and asylum seekers.

Divided into four sections the book covers:

  • issues around mental health service provision for black and minority ethnic (BME) communities including refugees and asylum seekers
  • critical accounts of how these issues may be confronted, with examples of projects that attempt to do just that
  • programs and innovative services that appear to meet some of the needs of BME communities
  • a critical but constructive account of lessons to be drawn from earlier sections and discussion of the way ahead.

With chapters on training, service user involvement, policy development and service provision Mental Health in a Multi-Ethnic Society will appeal to academics, professionals, trainers and managers, as well as providing up-to-date information for a general readership.

About the Author:

Suman Fernando has been a consultant psychiatrist and an academic in the mental health field for over twenty-five years. He is honorary Senior Lecturer at the European Centre for the Study of Migration & Social Care and honorary Professor in the Department of Applied Social Sciences at London Metropolitan University.

Frank Keating is Senior Lecturer in Health and Social Care at Royal Holloway University of London where he is Programme Director for the MSc in Social Work. His main research focuses on the inequalities in mental health for African and Caribbean communities in the UK.

Review:

'This second edition of Suman Fernando's book, now co-edited by Frank Keating, is a must read for those interested in cultural influences on the expression and management of mental distress in diverse societies. Although the book is anchored in British experience there are general propositions which should also be taken up for psychiatric practice the world over.' - Kamaldeep Bhui, Professor of Cultural Psychiatry & Epidemiology, Barts & The London School of Medicine & Dentistry, Honorary Consultant Psychiatrist East London NHS Foundation Trust.
