Description Mental Health in Ireland by Dr. Agnes Higgins

Unique new book providing an overview and critical analysis of developments in Irish mental health policy, practice and law from 1945 to the present day, in the context of key emerging theoretical concepts. * Written by leaders in the field, the book is presented in three distinct sections, which examine: * The context for mental health care and support in 21st-century Ireland * Emerging developments in mental health service delivery and law * The implications of current trends for mental health policy, practice and law in Ireland in the future. * Addresses key issues relating to recent changes in approaches to mental health care and implications for mental health practitioners, such as: * The shifting discourse around conceptions and treatment of mental distress * The move from expert-led care to recovery-orientated, partnership-based support * The challenge posed to service development by minority and marginalised groups * The changing interface between the legal and mental health care systems * The complexity of economic evaluation of mental health services * The paradox of mental health service provision in a risk-averse society. * Reviews the Mental Health Act 2001, the Criminal Law (Insanity) Act 2006, the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and the Irish Government'
s mental health policy, A Vision for Change. * Presents an invaluable resource, based on recent academic and informally published literature, in the field of mental health in Ireland. Written For: *Undergraduate and postgraduate students in mental health nursing, psychology, social work, occupational therapy and psychiatry *Also suitable for students of medicine, social policy, disability studies, speech and language therapy and anyone with an interest in mental health
