Mental Health Care: An Introduction for Health Professionals, 5th Edition is a textbook package that helps undergraduate students learn the subject matter as part of a multi-disciplinary team of care providers. With an emphasis on understanding practical, real-life scenarios, the fifth edition helps students develop a sense of empathy and gain confidence in care provision.

The new edition has been updated to include COVID-19 and it’s impact on mental health, along with an extensive refresh across multiple chapters.


  • Jargon-free and written for the undergraduate student, it presents key mental health concepts and dispels mental illness stereotypes clearly and concisely.

  • ‘Lived Experience’ case studies provide the voice of the consumer of care, exposing students to real person experiences.

  • Videos with real clinicians and top researchers help bring relevancy to topics through engaging storytelling.
