The move towards community-centred mental health care has attracted much publicity, and forced health care professionals to assume a range of new roles and responsibilities. Collaborative Community Mental Health Care identifies these challenges, and promotes a multiprofessional team approach to dealing with them. The topics covered include financial aspects, day care rehabilitation, psychiatric emergencies, intervention, support of team members and the responsibility of the voluntary sector. This text will be of particular use to community health professionals, social workers, and students following nursing degree programmes and the diploma level Mental Health Branch.
