Summaries
Back Cover Copy
Policy makers and practitioners have noted the increased incidence of mental health problems and disorders among young people, causing anxiety and distress for young people themselves, challenges for the health care professional, social worker, teachers and parents and demands on the health system and informal sector care. At the same time, the needs of special groups such as homeless young people, young people looked after by local authorities, lesbian and gay youth, and young people with learning difficulties are increasingly recognised. Young People and Mental Health offers a succinct overview of key mental health issues affecting young people today. The book gives up-to-date summaries of the nature, causes and effects of different mental health problems and disorders among young people, as well as some of the more successful interventions for prevention. Each chapter defines the nature of the problem, looks at prevalence and risk factors and concludes with interventions, such as the steps that can be taken to prevent problems arising and the kinds of support young people most need. The book tackles practical problems including: Bullying in and out of school Serious antisocial behaviour Anxiety and depression Alcohol and drug misuse Youth suicide and self harm Eating disorders In plain and straightforward language Young People and Mental Health provides health professionals, teachers, youth workers, social workers and parents with practical and accessible advice and guidance.
