This text has been written to meet the needs of students stydying for the Diploma in Nursing and for qualified and returning nurses. The authors trace human emotional development within the community a a starting point and focus on individual needs in a culturally diverse world. Care of people with mental health problems demands wide insights, a broad body of knowledge and a range of specialist skills. It is easy not only to misunderstand the nature of the problems but to cause harm. This is illustrated by a service care user in the early part of the book. The inclusion of a sad tale of poor practice provides the reader with insight into the client's view and feelings. The 23 authors redress the balance in describing the skills which can be developed in the relief of mantal distress. Throughout the book, theory and practice are illustrated with accounts of examples of care in different settings providing opportunities for the reader to link personal experience with that of the writer. The writers were selected from centres throughout the United Kingdom to contribute a spectrum of specialist knowledge from their wide experience of working with clinets and their families and teaching students. This text is based on the principles of syllabus for the Mental Health Nursing Branch of the Diploma in the UK and will be suitable for this level of course worldwide.
