9781901242751: Where There Is No Psychiatrist: A Mental Health Care Manual (Books Beyond Words)

Even though mental illnesses are common and cause great suffering in every part of the world, many health workers have a limited understanding about mental health and are less comfortable dealing with mental illness. This book is a practical manual for mental health care for the community health worker, the primary care nurse, the social worker and the primary care doctor, particularly in developing countries. After giving the reader a basic understanding of mental illness, the book goes on to describe more than 30 clinical problems associated with mental illness and uses a problem-solving approach to guide the reader through their assessment and management. Mental health issues as they arise in specific health care contexts are described, for example in a refugee camp, a school health programme or with people suffering from AIDS, as well as in mental health promotion. The final section combines quick reference information for common problems and it also includes chapters for the reader to personalise the manual for a particular location, for example, by entering local information on voluntary agencies, the names and costs of medicines and words in the local language for emotional symptoms.

About the Author:

Vikram Patel - Senior Lecturer at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. He has spent over ten years working in Zimbabwe and India and is currently at the Sangath Centre in Goa.

Review:

"In a flat 20 minutes the reader would be equipped to assess someone with mental illness. The book is simple and has an appeal at various levels from an average lay reader to a medical practitioner. This great enduring effort from Vikram Patel is timely and a godsend for all." - One India One People journal "This is no ordinary text. It is designed to be used in the large tracts of the developing world where there is no easy access to skilled medical help. It is a very considerable undertaking, which succeeds with ingenuity and flair. The range of psychiatric problems covered is impressive. It is impossible to gauge the benefits to sufferers from mental disorder that this remarkable book will bring." - W. A. Lishman (Emeritus Professor of Neuropsychiatry, Institute of Psychiatry, London) "The general practitioner (health worker or doctor) tends to know a lot about physical illnesses but too little about mental health. Until now, a huge gap has remained in the provision of primary health care in the field of mental health. Now, at last, that need has been magnificently filled, with Dr Vikam Patel's very comprehensive yet remarkably user-friendly book Where There Is No Psychiatrist. How I wish had had this book years before!" - David Werner (Author of 'Where There Is No Doctor') --David Werner
