Cultural Diversity, Mental Health and Psychiatry covers a wide terrain in a convincing and coherent matter. This is a lively, very readable and thoroughly engaging text that should be essential reading for mental health professionals, members of voluntary organisations and academics in mental and social health care fields. -Charles Watters, Director of the European Centre for the Study of Migration and Social Care, University of Kent at Canterbury

In his latest and most critical analysis, Suman Fernando weaves together themes of immense importance for the future of psychiatry and mental health services in a multi-cultural setting. This title explores the nature of racism and its permeation into mental health services; the inside story of the struggle against racism in statutory and voluntary sectors of the mental health system; and the history of psychiatry and the role of spirituality, holistic thinking, psychotherapy and Asian traditions of medicine. Trainees, practitioners, and managers of mental health services will profit from the practical application of Fernando's ideas, and students and academics will benefit from his theoretical guidance.
