Social Work and Mental Health in Scotland



April 2008 | 224 pages | Learning Matters
Since the inception of the Scottish Parliament in 1999, mental health law, policy, practice and ethos have changed dramatically in Scotland. This book provides a thorough grounding in the key issues in mental health and presents a clear picture of the current Scottish mental health scene. By highlighting the skills and values that are necessary for contemporary practice, it helps students to develop their knowledge and understanding to enable them to deliver an appropriate and responsive service for people facing mental health challenges.
