The SAGE Handbook of Mental Health and Illness is a landmark volume, which integrates the conceptual, empirical, and evidence-based threads of mental health as an area of study, research, and practice. It approaches mental health from two perspectives - firstly as a positive state of well-being and personal and social functioning and secondly as psychological difference or abnormality in its social context.
Unique features include:
The Handbook will be an invaluable resource for graduate students, academics, and researchers studying mental health in disciplines such as psychiatry, clinical psychology, social work, occupational therapy, nursing, and sociology.
