Awarded second place in the 2017 AJN Book of the Year Awards in Psychiatric and Mental Health Nursing. "I welcome, at long last, a book on global mental health targeted to nurses, the front-line health worker for billions of people around the world.? The roles that nurses can, and should, play in mental health care are diverse and this book addresses both well-trod as well as emerging concerns across the continuum of care from promotion to prevention to treatment. Importantly, at the heart of this diversity is the foundation of compassion and care, the hallmark of the nursing profession." – Vikram Patel, Professor of International Mental Health and Wellcome Trust Principal Research Fellow in Clinical Science, Centre for Global Mental Health, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK Psychiatric disorders have consistently been identified as serious and significant global burdens of disease, yet meeting the needs of people in mental distress has not often been a priority in health care. This important reference work sets out the knowledge base for understanding the state of mental health care globally, and translating that into effective practice. The Handbook provides a historical and contemporary context of mental health care, identifies and discusses evidence-based standards of care and strategies for mental health promotion and explores the need to deliver care from interdisciplinary and community-based models, placing these imperatives within a human rights and empowerment framework. It is made up of four core sections which look at: Key and emerging issues that affect global mental health practice and research, including the social context of health; Evidence-based health promotion strategies for major areas of practice internationally; A range of country studies, reflecting different problems and approaches to mental health and mental health care internationally; and What constitutes empowering practice. The only comprehensive work looking at global perspectives on mental health nursing, this is an invaluable reference for all students, academics and professionals involved in mental health research with an interest in global or cross-cultural issues.

Mental health clinicians who lack internal medicine experience or who do not feel comfortable addressing medical conditions in their patients will find Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry an indispensable resource. The first evidence-based medical handbook for psychiatrists in training or practice, the book takes the reader through a series of common medical conditions, offering practical information on diagnosis and treatment of life-threatening conditions, as well as management of less serious health issues. For the second edition, the text has been thoroughly updated and restructured. The book is designed to guide clinicians to focus quickly and effectively on managing medical problems in the psychiatric setting. The Handbook offers invaluable content and many helpful features: Coverage of medical emergency management in psychiatric hospitals takes the limitations of the facility into account. For example, the chapters on caring for patients in cardiac arrest or patients in respiratory failure include practical strategies for adapting to the limited resources available in self-standing psychiatric hospitals. The material on life-threatening adverse reactions to psychotropic drugs is completely up-to-date and thorough and includes guidelines for the recognition, prevention, and management of agranulocytosis, ventricular arrhythmias, pancreatitis, neuroleptic malignant syndrome, serotonin syndrome, hyperglycemic emergencies, and airway obstruction. Medical deterioration in psychiatric settings is both common and critical, and the book offers cutting-edge knowledge on assessment procedures and instruments for prediction of acute medical deterioration of psychiatric inpatients. Structured for easy reading and comprehension, the book's topics are grouped into seven parts that address the essential features of clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, stratification of the risk of major complications or death, and the evidence-based approach to management, as applicable in the psychiatric setting. The numerous tables, figures, and flowcharts effectively illustrate important procedures and protocols. Completely updated and streamlined, Handbook of Medicine in Psychiatry stands alone in its completeness, its rigor, and its understanding of the environmental challenges that face the clinician delivering care to patients with serious medical and psychiatric comorbidities.

The Routledge International Handbook of Critical Mental Health offers the most comprehensive collection of theoretical and applied writings to date with which students, scholars, researchers and practitioners within the social and health sciences can systematically problematise the practices, priorities and knowledge base of the Western system of mental health. With the continuing contested nature of psychiatric discourse and the work of psy-professionals, this book is a timely return to theorising the business of mental health as a social, economic, political and cultural project: one which necessarily involves the consideration of wider societal and structural dynamics including labelling and deviance, ideological and social control, professional power, consumption, capital, neoliberalism and self-governance. Featuring original essays from some of the most established international scholars in the area, the Handbook discusses and provides updates on critical theories of mental health from labelling, social constructionism, antipsychiatry, Foucauldian and Marxist approaches to critical feminist, race and queer theory, critical realism, critical cultural theory and mad studies. Over six substantive sections, the collection additionally demonstrates the application of such theoretical ideas and scholarship to key topics including medicalisation and pharmaceuticalisation, the DSM, global psychiatry, critical histories of mental health, and talk therapy. Bringing together the latest theoretical work and empirical case studies from the US, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Canada, the Routledge International Handbook of Critical Mental Health demonstrates the continuing need to think critically about mental health and illness, and will be an essential resource for all who study or work in the field.
