This new edition of a bestselling, evidence-based textbook provides a comprehensive overview of psychiatric and mental health nursing. Keeping service users and their recovery at the centre of care, the holistic approach will help nurses to gain the tools and understanding required to work in this complex area.

Extensively updated for this new edition, the text looks at:

  • Aspects of mental health nursing: covering topics such as ethics, developing therapeutic relationships and supervision.
  • The foundations of mental health nursing: discussing diagnosis, assessment and risk.
  • Caring for those experiencing mental health distress: looking at wide range of troubles including anxiety, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and issues around sexuality and gender.
  • Care planning and approaches to therapeutic practice: exploring ideas, pathways and treatments such as recovery, CBT, psychodynamic therapies and psychopharmacology.
  • Services and support for those with mental health distress: covering topics such as collaborative work, involvement of service users and their families and carers, and a range of different mental healthcare settings.
  • Mental health nursing in the twenty-first century: highlighting emerging and future trends including the political landscape, physical health and health promotion, and technological advances.

This accessible and comprehensive textbook integrates service user perspectives throughout and includes student-friendly features such as learning outcomes, key points summaries, reflection points and further reading sections. It is an essential resource for all mental health nursing students, as well as an invaluable reference for practising nurses.

About the Author:

Mary Chambers, Kingston University and St.George's University of London Joint Faculty, UK

Review:

"This book is a fine description of the many issues which relate to the understanding and practice of nursing people who have mental health problems. Such problems distress a major proportion of the general population at some point in the course of their lives. Mental health difficulties also often impact on sufferers' families and their communities. Those difficulties are thus a substantial aspect of health care matters as a whole. The volume by Chambers is written in easy-to-grasp language. It has 73 chapters. Each chapter starts with a short summary of the main points it contains. The book is a valuable introduction to the area." – Isaac Marks, Emeritus Professor of Experimental Psychopathology, King's College London, UK

"This book provides a rich evocation of the best of psychiatric and mental health nursing with the centrality of the therapeutic relationship and collaboration threaded throughout the many illuminating chapters. The voice and experience of the service user and recognition of the need for skilled partnership working with service users, families, carers and colleagues is central. Many of the tensions and challenges are also explored. I dipped into various chapters and found I just wanted to keep reading. Lots here to get you thinking and striving." – Alan Simpson, Professor of Collaborative Mental Health Nursing, City, University of London, UK
