International Perspectives on Mental Health

International Perspectives on Mental Health is a unique collection of authoritative briefings from over 90 countries around the world. Each chapter covers demographics, mental health resources, undergraduate education, postgraduate training in psychiatry, research activities, mental health legislation, policy and development strategies within the chosen country.

Each chapter is written by experienced senior practitioners who have intimate knowledge of all aspects of psychiatry, including workforce, policy and delivery models. They offer a wealth of information as well as critical examination and evaluation of service development. The chapters were originally commissioned, reviewed and edited for publication in the College’s journal International Psychiatry.

There is a growing recognition of the cultural aspects of psychiatric practice in different regions, and in today’s globalised society many health professionals have interests that cross geographical boundaries. This is the first book of its kind that will meet the needs of this diverse group of readers.

Readership:
The book should interest all psychiatrists and is particularly useful for those working in multicultural societies (where differing cultural aspects can impact on psychiatric practice) and for those with interests that cross geographical boundaries.

About the editor: Hamid Ghodse is Professor of Psychiatry and Director of the International Centre for Drug Policy, at St. George’s, University of London.
