Integrating up-to-date pharmacological and genetic knowledge with an understanding of environmental factors that impact on human biology, The Biological Basis of Mental Health Nursing covers topics including:

  • the physiology of neurotransmission and receptors
  • hormones and mental health
  • the biology of emotions, stress, anxiety and phobic states
  • the biology of substance abuse
  • the pharmacology of psychoactive drugs
  • developmental disorders
  • brain anatomy and development
  • the biology of behaviour
  • genetics and mental health
  • affective disorders: depression, mania and suicide
  • schizophrenia
  • autism and other syndromes
  • the ageing brain and dementia
  • degenerative diseases of the brain
  • epilepsy.

Accessibly laid out, with many of diagrams, tables and key points at the end of each chapter, this is an essential text for mental health nursing students, practitioners and educators.
