At a time of huge pressures on mental health services, this highly topical, broad-ranging and thought-provoking analysis of the mental health crisis examines the current challenges in mental health service delivery and access using a range of perspectives (political, economic, and cultural, organisational issues). It then puts forward a number of alternatives, reviewing both current and alternative initiatives, and exploring what is needed for a mentally healthy society.

In The Press
Mental Health in Crisis is an outstanding polemic against neo-liberalism and its impact on mental health care. Vos, Roberts and Davies offer a lucid and compelling analysis of how emotional wellbeing is conceptualised, medicalised and compromised in the United Kingdom. The book is essential reading for mental health practitioners and an ideal companion to students studying counselling, social work and related disciplines.
