Fundamentals of Mental Health Nursing: An Essential Guide for Nursing and Healthcare Students EbooK PDF download Enjoy aking the time to read this book Fundamentals of Mental Health Nursing: An Essential Guide for Nursing and Healthcare Students. In recent years we would like to think that attitudes towards mental health have improved to the extent that , policymakers and healthcare professionals are now focused on working in partnership with service users, including their families and friends, to support people who are experiencing or have experienced a l health problem.

There has often been a tension between mental health service users and practitioners in agreeing what is the most effective way of working together to facilitate wellness and recovery. Perhaps many of these tensions remain unresolved. However, in this book we hope to introduce you to many of the fundamental ideas, issues and concepts that shape mental health nursing practice today.

Therefore, we hope you will find this book stimulating and informative but most of all we hope the book will challenge the way you think about mental health. We were very pleased to be asked to edit this book for Wiley, and are grateful to all of the contributors, who have a range of experience in the field of mental health including those who are service users, carers, practitioners and researchers and those involved with learning and teaching activities in higher education institutions.

Fundamentals of Mental Health Nursing: An Essential Guide for Nursing and Healthcare Students

We believe this breadth of expertise will enable readers to engage with each of the chapters to develop their knowledge and understanding of topics that can often appear complex, confusing and, dare we say it, contradictory. That is not a criticism, it is merely an acknowledgement that unlike some other health conditions, concepts of mental health and mental health treatments are sometime contested by a variety of individuals and stakeholders. For example, there is often a debate surrounding the causation of mental health problems and certainly there are many differing and competing perspectives on what are the most effective treatments for a particular disorder.

Moreover, many people with mental health problems may not access traditional mental health services where nurses, doctors and other healthcare professionals practice. Therefore, it is important when reading this book that you are aware that mental well-being and recovery is not always a linear and homogenous process.

To make sense of these debates and healthy disagreements we have included 30 chapters divided into four sections to give you a basic and fundamental understanding of the ideas, issues and concepts that are relevant for students who have a desire to find out more or work with people experiencing a mental health problem. The sections are provided to bring meaning and shape to the book and each section contains individual chapters.
