This guidebook is written by people with an enormous commitment to those who have psychiatric illnesses and their families. In a downto-earth way it describes how professionals can involve themselves in working with families of their clients for better relationships and superior outcome. Terms such as psychoeducation, family interventions, etc. are not well understood even in the mental health field, despite decades of positive research. The aim of this book is to inform and motivate more people and more mental health services to adopt and implement family work as a part of basic care for those they treat and care for.
It is for all those who are involved with the care of people with mental health problems: psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, social workers and other health professionals, as well as policy makers, service managers, families, carers and the persons themselves who are unwell.
