The second edition of Mental Health in Australia: Collaborative Community Practice provides a comprehensive overview of the issues, practice and policy affecting mental health in Australia. New material on non-government organisations, rehabilitation and old age, early psychosis, children and mental health issues, early intervention and emergency psychiatry, ensures the book's currency in a field of changing paradigms. Divided into two parts, the book first covers the context and history of mental health in Australia, with chapters on community responses, conceptual modes, global perspectives, research, and evaluation of mental health care delivery. Part Two focuses on clinical practice and case management, and includes discussion of possible future directions. Margaret Grigg, a new co-editor, has added a nursing perspective to the book, with new material and case studies showing the importance of collaborative practice in mental health services across nursing, medicine, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and social work. Twenty-four case studies illustrate the 'lived experience' of mental health, and demonstrate responses from diverse professional services -- from diagnosis and referral to treatment and outcomes.
