Abstract/Summary Mental Health in Australia provides a fully updated, comprehensive overview of mental health in Australia. Presenting contributions from consumers, carers, managers, researchers, and clinicians, this indispensible reference offers a diverse range of perspectives on the rich and challenging task of working in the interest of those with mental health problems. In this updated second edition, new material on case work and management, NGOs, rehabilitation and old age, early psychosis, children and mental health issues and emergency psychiatry has been included to benefit nurses, social workers and allied health practitioners. Divided into two parts, the book first covers valuable background material by looking at the context and history of mental health in Australia, including chapters on community responses, conceptual modes, global perspectives, research, and evaluation of mental health care delivery. It then focuses on current clinical practice and case management, and discusses possible future directions.
