Oxford Textbook of Community Mental Health free pdf What is the best way to provide mental health care within the community? How can these services be provided in a way that is easy to access and offer treatments that really work? Community mental health care has evolved as a discipline over the past 50 years, and within the past 20 years, there have been major developments across the world. The Oxford Textbook of Community Mental Health is the most comprehensive and authoritative review published in the field. It looks at how the field has evolved, the current approaches, and combines more established concepts, such as community-based interventions and an epidemiological perspective, with newer concepts, such the recovery approach, evidence-based practices, and implementation science, which are the most powerful ideas shaping this field. . Like community mental health care itself, the book is multidisciplinary and pluralistic. Thoughout, it addresses controversies and also emphasizes areas of convergence, where social values, medical science, and policy show increasing synergy. The book will be an essential reference source for both trainee and qualified psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers and occupational therapist involved in providing community mental health care, as well as other related healthcare professionals and students, mental health service planners and commissioners, and service user and carer groups.
