Reviews

"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
