  • My journey within the field of spirituality and mental health has been an interesting one. It began 30-odd years ago on the day that I wandered into my first psychiatric ward, a student psychiatric nurse with not much of a clue about anything. In this strange land of madness, medication and control, spiritualitywas not a priority and the idea of spiritual care as a discrete aspect of nursing was not really on the agenda either in terms of education or practice. It’s not so much that it was avoided, it simply wasn’t an issue....

  • I had not realised before starting work on this book how much attention had in¯uenced my thinking about mental illness and mental health. In the 1980s, I had been greatly intrigued by Pierre Janet's descriptions of attentional debility as a pathognomonic sign of hysteria. According to Janet, the (usually female) hysterical patient differed from others in an inability to talk and tap her ®ngers on command at the same time.

  • 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.

  • If you have ever been asked by a client, family member, student, or policy maker, if there is more to treatment for mental illness than just symptom reduction, this book is for you. This question fi rst emerges from the idea that the pursuit of health is a common, human goal, intrinsic to all individuals in all societies. This is not a new phenomenon. However, there are certain groups who suffer greatly from the dual challenge of physical illness and mental health conditions. In their case, health has been less of a goal and more of a byproduct following treatment for distressing symptoms.
