Race, culture and ethnicity all have a bearing on mental health care and yet the training of mental health professionals has arguably lacked an overall approach to various aspects of working in a multi-ethnic society. In this text, an account of the changing face of mental health care is examined, exploring the ways in which practitioners from different professions need to work in the area of "community care". It examines: the realities of life in a multi-ethnic society; the limitations of traditional psychiatric practice; the rising influence of the users of the services; and the legal framework determined by society at large. The first part of the book deals with the context in which mental health services operate and the second part addresses racial and cultural issues that arise in delivering services in a multi-ethnic society from a practical viewpoint.
