Mental Health: A person-centred approach adopts an all-encompassing approach to engaging with, responding to and supporting people with mental illness and substance abuse. This substantially updated second edition incorporates the latest mental health research, including a new chapter focusing on psychotropic medications, while retaining the strong narrative approach of the first edition. Readers are encouraged to connect theory, practice and the lived experiences of consumers and carers. The diverse range of consumer and carer perspectives enhances readers' understanding of the process of recovery from mental illness, the use of mental health services and the provision of mental health support, by encouraging them to make human connections as they read. Written by an expert author team, Mental Health: A person-centred approach is an essential resource for students, supporting the development of safe, high-quality, person-centred care in both the Australian and New Zealand contexts.

- Covers a broad range of topics, providing students with a comprehensive understanding and encouraging best practice
- Adopts a person-centred, strengths-based approach that is supported by personal narratives from both consumers and carers
- Connects theory with practice through highly effective pedagogy
- Includes exciting new chapters on psychotropic medications and e-mental health that prepare students for the future of the profession
