'This book provides an engaging and critical discussion of biopsychosocial approaches to mental health problems. It is steeped in scholarship and should be required reading for all social work students and experienced mental health social workers to help articulate their contribution to mental health services.' - Martin Webber, King's College London, UK

'This first class book very successfully addresses the need of social work students and educators for a text which explores knowledge for mental health practice. It thoughtfully and accessibly steers a welcome course through often contentious perspectives, underpinned by recent research and the author's own expertise and commitment to "experts by experience."' - Imogen Taylor, University of Sussex, UK
