About the Authors
  • Medicine is changing, towards a greater emphasis on self-care and patient choice. But truly collaborative care is hampered by inequality, exacerbated by stigmatisation and discrimination. These experiences of social exclusion can block the road to recovery for people with mental illness. People with mental illness are among the most socially excluded in our society. This book is concerned with social exclusion and mental disorder and the steps that psychiatrists and mental health workers can take to facilitate the social inclusion of people with mental health problems. Alongside contributions from psychiatrists and mental health professionals, people with mental illness and their carers write about the helplessness they sometimes feel when faced with mental health services, the challenges of caring for someone, and what might be done to aid the journey to recovery. The book encompasses a wealth of experience and evidence supported by research and everyday practice. This is an invaluable resource for mental health professionals, medical educators, policy makers, mental health service providers and charities.

    • Offers comprehensive discussion of the nature and extent of exclusion resulting from mental illness in the UK today
    • Provides recovery-oriented perspectives from mental health professionals, serviceusers and carers
    • Presents advice on how professional practice, training and mental health services can be transformed to facilitate social inclusion
