Mental Health Care, 4th Edition is a textbook package that helps undergraduate students learn the subject matter as both a consumer of care and as part of a multi-disciplinary team of care providers. With an emphasis on understanding practical, real-life scenarios, the fourth edition helps students develop a sense of empathy and gain confidence in care provision.
