Debates on mental health social work have recently come to an impasse. There has been considerable emphasis on the social roots of mental distress, which has resulted in more holistic approaches to social work practice. Nonetheless the dominant approach to mental health continues to be a medical one, which excludes social workers from new initiatives. In this book, Jeremy Weinstein draws on case studies and his own experiences as a mental health social worker to navigate these conflicting facets of the field. Ultimately, he develops a model of practice that is sensitive to issues of alienation, discrimination, and the need for both workers and service users to find adequate room to breathe in an environment increasingly shaped by managerialism and marketization.

On the one hand, the emphasis in recent policy documents on the social roots of much mental distress ,and in the recovery approaches popular with service users seems to indicate an important role for a holistic social work practice. On the other hand, social workers have often been excluded from these initiatives and the dominant approach within mental health continues to be a medical one, albeit supplemented by short-term psychological interventions. In this short form book, part of the Critical and Radical Debates in Social Work series, Jeremy Weinstein draws on case studies and his own experience as a mental health social worker, to develop a model of practice that draws on notions of alienation, anti-discriminatory practice and the need for both workers and service users to find `room to breathe in an environment shaped by managerialism and marketisation.
