When working in the field of mental illness, the best evidence is people’s lived experience. The third edition of Working with Serious Mental Illness maintains its focus on research data, but this is framed by patients’ personal perspectives to provide clear, practical advice for practitioners.
Aimed at nurses and healthcare practitioners working with mental illnesses such as severe depression, bi-polar disorder and psychosis, this book provides solutions for engaging and working with patients and their families. It vividly presents lived experience and the recommendations of patients, then proceeds through developing and implementing effective interventions and how to reflect on patient relationships to ensure sustained success.
Easy to read and packed full of practical tips and strategies, this is the ideal book for all healthcare practitioners working with patients with serious mental illness, their families and their carers. It will also be valuable reading for staff working in acute and community mental care settings who lack specialist training in serious mental health disorders, for nursing students, mental health nurses and general nurses working in mental health, primary care and community settings.
