This groundbreaking first volume of the Series has a number of features that set it apart from other books on this subject: Firstly, it focuses on interpersonal, humanistic and ecological views and approaches to P/MH nursing. Secondly, it highlights patient/client-centered approaches and mental-health-service user involvement. Lastly, it is a genuinely European P/MH nursing textbook - the first of its kind - largely written by mental health scholars from Europe, although it also includes contributions from North America and Australia/New Zealand.

Focusing on clinical/practical issues, theory and empirical findings, it adopts an evidence-based or evidence-informed approach.

As such, it will be the first genuinely 21st century European Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing book.
