Social work practice involves working with and supporting people with mental health problems in many settings and across the life span. Growing as a reflective and informed practitioner is central to one's development as a student social worker and as a registered social worker. With a focus on legislation, policy and practice, this book draws on excerpts from seminal writing, journal articles, policy papers, government initiatives, statistics and user perspectives and invites readers to deepen their appreciation and understanding of social work practice in the mental health context.
