Implementing Mental Health Promotion provides a comprehensive overview and practical guide to implementing mental health promotion programmes with different population groups across a range of settings. It shows how information from research can be used to inform programme development and best practice. The text is written from a 'how-to' perspective, combining an exploration of current research with practical advice to support the planning and implementation of programmes. The book provides examples of successful international programmes illustrating the process of implementation. Case studies of practical aspects of project development and delivery from different countries are included in order to illustrate the real life application of programmes.
"How to do and deliver mental health promotion...Much more valuable is the inclusion of a comprehensive range of programmes from the peer-reviewed literature, with examples from many different countries in many different settings...The authors have provided a context for thinking about practice, rather than a series of interventions"Lynne Friedli. Mental Health Today. October 2007
This book is designed for health promoters and health professionals working across a range of service settings including primary care, health promotion, community development and mental health services. The book provides a practical guide to mental health promotion for nurses, doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, teachers and other professionals who may wish to engage in this work. Policy makers, programme managers and course organisers will also gain useful insights into the steps involved in successful programme delivery. The book would be essential reading for the MA/ Higher Diploma in Health Promotion and similar such postgraduate training programmes such as those linked to the European Masters in Health Promotion Training initiative. It would be recommended reading for modules on Mental Health Promotion on postgraduate training programmes.
