This handbook provides a succinct introduction to child mental health, covering the nature, prevalence, treatment and management of mental health problems in children and young people.

The authors explore a range of issues surrounding the emotional needs of young people, showing how specific problems such as ADHD and learning difficulties can be targeted, while also recognising diversity issues and paying particular attention to at-risk groups. This edition is updated to reflect current direction in services, cutting edge approaches to interventions in primary health care, teaching and social service settings, as well as incorporating children's views on what mental health means to them and the impact of social media.

Setting out ways in which young people can be supported by all practitioners in primary care, and covering early years through to late adolescence, the authors have created an invaluable resource for any front-line practitioner working in this area.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Helpful to both new and more experienced workers in the field or for those just wanting to understand more about individual topics. It gives consideration to the wider concept of mental health and how problems develop as well as using case studies to illustrate the conditions seen. A helpful and informative text. -- Cathy Laver-Bradbury Consultant Nurse Solent NHS author of Step by Step Help for children with ADHD-A self help manual for parents
The handbook is a valuable third edition at a time of changing landscapes in CAMHS provision. With the demands and knowledge required by universal services to support, help and understand children, young people and family mental health undiminished, this up to date text is a welcome guide for both practitioners and students. -- Maddie Burton, Senior Lecturer Child and Adolescent Mental Health, University of Worcester
