This jargon-free guide is suitable for all trainee and registered health professionals who require knowledge and understanding of drugs used in the treatment of mental health conditions for prescribing or administering purposes. A life-saving book that you can carry anywhere you go!

Introductory material provides a background on psychotropic drugs, the etiology of mental illness, some of the commonly used drugs in practice and brief notes on common non-pharmacological interventional options. It also examines the pathophysiology of mental illness and clinical decision making.

The central chapters provide comprehensive coverage of all the major medications used in the most common mental health disorders, detailing key drugs and including side effects, average doses, contra-indications and precautions, and clinical management interventions. Case studies, multiple choice questions and summary tasks in each chapter enable readers to clearly relate theory to practice and thoroughly review their learning.

The second edition of this best-selling text has been completely revised to include:

  • updated information and refreshed case studies throughout;
  • more activities for self-study and interactive learning, including multiple choice questions;
  • an emphasis on new ways of working within mental health settings, such as non-restrictive practice;
  • a completely new chapter on alcohol and substance misuse.
