  • This book by Graham Thornicroft and Michele Tansella has a very clear objective: how better care could achieve better outcomes for people suffering from mental disorders. The preoccupation of the book is to derive bettermental health care from the best ethical, evidence-based and experience-based practices available. These two propositions, improving outcomes and framing interventions upon ethics, evidence and experience, are so clearly defined by the authors that this book represents a challenge to psychiatrists who sometimes forget the key link between ‘treatment’ and ‘care’.

  • In this opening chapter, we outline some of the most influential (and most contested) definitions of health, and approaches to health promotion. Although some success has been claimed for health promotion interventions, in general the results to date have been modest: for example, safer sex campaigns in preventing HIV infection among gay men. In other areas efforts have been remarkably disappointing, notably in preventing smoking uptake among adolescents. ‘Health promotion’ is a term which has been applied to a very wide range of activities performed in many and diverse contexts....

Here’s where a board member or advisor with significant public relations experience, working hand in glove with your community advisory board, can be very helpful.
