About the Authors
  • Mental Health: A Person-centred Approach aligns leading mental health research with the human connections that can and should be made in mental health care. It seeks to deepen readers' understanding of themselves, the work they do, and how this intersects with the lives and crises of people with mental illness. This book adopts a storytelling approach, which encourages engagement with the lives and needs of consumers and carers in mental health. Each chapter features learning objectives, reflective and critical thinking questions, extension activities and further reading. Mental Health: A Person-centred Approach is a comprehensive resource which utilises fresh thinking to support the development of safe, high-quality, person-centred care in both the Australian and New Zealand context.

    • This book has a nursing focus but considers the broader health context and a range of practice settings
    • Chapters include stories of those with experience of recovering from mental illness, using mental health services or giving mental health support
    • Each chapter features learning objectives, reflective and critical thinking questions, extension activities and further reading
