Mental Health in a Multi-ethnic Society by Suman Fernando
Book DescriptionThis new edition of Mental Health in a Multi-Ethnic Society is an authoritative, comprehensive guide on issues around race, culture and mental health service provision. It has been updated to reflect the changes in the UK over the last ten years and features entirely new chapters by over twenty authors, expanding the range of topics by including issues of particular concern for women, family therapy, and mental health of refugees and asylum seekers. Divided into four sections the book covers: * issues around mental health service provision for black and minority ethnic (BME) communities including refugees and asylum seekers * critical accounts of how these issues may be confronted, with examples of projects that attempt to do just that * programs and innovative services that appear to meet some of the needs of BME communities * a critical but constructive account of lessons to be drawn from earlier sections and discussion of the way ahead. With chapters on training, service user involvement, policy development and service provision Mental Health in a Multi-Ethnic Society will appeal to academics, professionals, trainers and managers, as well as providing up-to-date information for a general readership.
