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.

This thought-provoking book investigates the impact of racism (both conscious and unconscious) in mental health settings, covering individual clinical encounters and the broader picture of service provision. The authors offer insights into manifestations of racism in contemporary Britain; racial and cultural identity and the significance of these in psychotherapy; and the inequalities in provision of mental health services to minority ethnic communities. They consider the problems of racism and mental health, not in isolation but in the larger context of cultural difference and social inequalities, and also on the level of human relationships. Bringing together the experiences of mental health professionals and incorporating a service user's perspective, this book provides many practical strategies for addressing racism and dealing with its effects in psychiatric work, and will prove useful and informative to practitioners in many areas of mental health work.
