    By

    "This is a modern multi-disciplinary text confronting a complex age and journey into recovery. It is a roadmap for every student of mental health who wants to put the most up-to-date practice fuel into their tank. The case study approach offers an authentic insight into life experiences of service users and allows the reader to re-think the relationship they have with vulnerable people in the middle of sensitive life challenges." Dr Dean-David Holyoake, University of Wolverhampton, UKThis engaging book consists of 27 case studies which offer a realistic and insightful view into the experience of mental ill-health. A range of mental health problems are considered for people at different stages of the lifespan, from common problems such as anxiety or depression, through to severe and enduring conditions such as schizophrenia.Part of a new Case Book series, the book is written in an informative and clear style and utilises the latest evidence-based interventions and resources. The approach adopted: Incorporates recovery based principlesEmphasizes the importance of collaborative workingValues the person's perspectiveActively empowers and advocates for the person to make their own decisions and choices Written and edited by academic experts and experienced clinicians, the cases all take a positive, person-centred approach focusing on recovery outcomes. The book addresses the biological, psychological, social and physical aspects in scenarios and includes areas of mental health which are often overlooked, such as alcohol and substance misuse amongst older adults.Mental health nurse training involves focusing on working with individuals one-to-one in a range of settings, and this case book will reflect and complement the skills and situations students face while training and on placement.Contributors: Geoffrey Amoateng, Jean-Louis Ayivor, May Baker, Alison Coad, Hilary Ford, Sally Goldspink, John Harrison, Mark McGrath, Michael Nash, Cliff Riordan, Heather Rugg, Noel Sawyer, Vanessa Skinner, Steve Wood.
