  • Ten years ago when I wrote the foreword to the first edition of this book, the concept of women’s health was changing at a rapid pace. The focus was just shifting from solely reproductive issues and biological factors, to an expanded perception that women’s health encompasses biological, familial, cultural, economic, emotional, psychological, and behavioral elements of each woman and her sociopolitical environment, beyond just the reproductive organs and across her entire lifespan.

  • The remarkable political changes that have taken place within the European Region in the last five years have greatly enlarged the potential for international collaboration. The First European Conference on Environment and Health was held in Frankfurt in December 1989, when these dramatic changes were at their height.

  • Our first preface in 1993 emphasized that this book was A, not, The Sociology of Mental Health and Illness. Today, more than ever, it is quite a risk to write ‘The Sociology’ of anything. Moreover, as the wide-ranging references listed at the end of the book indicate, we continue to draw our material from sociology but also many other sources, including psychology and psychiatry. Sociological analyses of our topic are not offered only by sociologists.

  • With increasing recognition of the environmental impact of food and drink, future food policy and dietary advice need to go beyond the traditional focus on nutrient recommendations for health to include wider issues of sustainability. The task should not be underestimated, not least because the issue of sustainability is complex with multiple dimensions, including environmental, economic and social aspects. Current dietary advice is based on nutrient recommendations for health.

  • Others have suggested that an undue emphasis on the individual self reflects cultural bias and a limited world view (Christopher and Hickinbottom 2008). The wide range of benefits associated with mental health demonstrates the relevance of wellbeing to sectors beyond health, notably those concerned with the policy challenges presented by education, social cohesion, demographic change, sustainable economic development and environmental protection across the WHO European Region.

  • Within a social justice model, the G&J Program uses a reproductive justice framework, as conceptualized by SisterSong and Asian Communities for Reproductive Justice. 1 Reproductive justice extends beyond health services and information (reproductive health model) and fundamental liberties (reproductive rights model), to the economic, social, environmental, and political conditions that affect the health and lives of women and their families and communities.

  • Scarcely one half of the children of our country continue in school much beyond the fifth grade. It is important, therefore, that so far as possible the knowledge which has most to do with human welfare should be presented in the early years of school life. Fisher, Metchnikoff, Sedgwick, and others have shown that the health of a people influences the prosperity and happiness of a nation more than any other one thing. The highest patriotism is therefore the conservation of health.

  • The use of language is often anchored in history, tradition, assumptions, and values.Words communicate ideas that go beyond the terms and phrases themselves. But this is by no means static; there are trends and periodic shifts that impact how we think and understand the world around us and help to shape the work that we do. Accordingly, a few comments about language must precede the text that follows.

  • When I set out to write about the diagnostic process, I envisioned a text that could both complement classroom teaching and provide a guide for independent study. That was before I undertook a completely unscientific survey of practicing health care professionals, to learn how they had learned about mental health diagnosis. What I found surprised me. For most of the practitioners I surveyed, training in the refined art of diagnosis was—well, no training at all.

  • High medicines prices, low affordability and poor availability are key impediments to access to treatment in many low- and middle-income countries (1–9). Certainly, in those countries where the majority of the population still buys its medicines through out-of-pocket payments, the high cost of medicines (relative to the household budget) means that an illness in the family exposes that family to the risk of catastrophic expenditure. Too often the choice is made to go without.

  • The professional practice of counseling and mental health has become overly complex and litigious.

  • It is beyond the scope of this chapter to review in detail the different methods of detection, two published papers by Paneleaukou et al (2009), and Fehm et al (2005) have extensively reviewed the pros and cons of the different detection methods. In summary, PCR methods have a high rate of false positive results, density gradient centrifugation may be associated with increased lost of circulating cells whereas immunomagnetic separation may not recognize tumor cells which do not express EpCAM and does not differentiate between malignant and benign prostate cells.

  • Part memoir, nutritional primer, and political manifesto, this controversial examination exposes the destructive history of agriculture—causing the devastation of prairies and forests, driving countless species extinct, altering the climate, and destroying the topsoil—and asserts that, in order to save the planet, food must come from within living communities. In order for this to happen, the argument champions eating locally and sustainably and encourages those with the resources to grow their own food.

  • More than an accidental injury, more than a serious illness, more than a natural disaster, the trauma of crime victimization goes beyond physical and psychological injury: It robs us of the very faith we have in the human world. Although eclipsed in recent headlines by terrorism, the common everyday violations of civilized behavior that our own citizens continue to perpetrate on one another are no less wrenching.
