Psychology, Mental Health and Distress

I started off trying to read this book in its entirety but quickly came to the conclusion that this would be difficult. There is so much information in the book, which is not helped by the small font size and the page layouts.

The authors are psychologists who have written about mental health and mental distress from the perspectives of psychologists, which does make for a valuable addition to the general topic area, as evidenced by the glowing reviews on the book’s back cover.

This is definitely a psychology course textbook with a comprehensive referencelist and useful glossary of terms.

It is so detailed that, as a nurse, I felt something more distilled is needed to help me in clinical practice. It’s definitely worth dipping into, particularly the sections on history, culture sadness and worry, but rather than buy it myself, I would be pleased to see in a university library.
