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:
- A broad and inclusive view of the field, providing depth and breadth for the reader
- A team of international, multi-disciplinary editors and contributors
- Discussion of the many of the unresolved debates in the field about constructs and causes
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.
