'This book is a valuable resource for many people within the healthcare field. It is neatly divided into two parts; context within current UK policy and issues within practice areas. Many key areas are covered with multi-choice questions to enhance the learning for the reader. A contemporary, essential read.' -- Keith Ford 'This contemporary textbook is a valuable asset to all mental health practitioners. It offers well-defined, clear descriptions with information around common physical health problems. Exploration is offered around these fundamental issues within a mental health context, which is supported with clear evidence based approaches, to underpin the skills and interventions practitioners can use within their clinical practice.' -- Angie Chadwick 'Development of knowledge and skills in physical healthcare is crucial for all mental health practitioners. This comprehensive and contemporary text incorporates the key factors involved in addressing the physical health needs and wellbeing of people with mental illness and is relevant for all mental health professionals.' -- Sonya Chelvanayagam 'Bradshaw and Mairs set the standard for usability and practicality in their new text. Learning outcomes, organizing questions, reflection points and activities, engage the reader and ensure that learning takes place. Application of their material will make a substantial contribution to provider confidence and health care outcomes of those served.' -- Helen Buckland 'This is an invaluable and much-need contribution that recognises the importance of 'parity of esteem' between mental and physical health, enhances knowledge of such co-morbid health problems, and offers client-centred approaches to address health behaviour change. This is a must-read text for all practitioners working across all areas of healthcare.' -- Rob Allison 'This well-written textbook is an important resource for mental health care professionals. I think it will provide valuable guidance for professionals working, teaching and studying in the field. This book emphasizes the significance of a holistic approach and is highly recommended for those in the field.' -- Ronelle Jansen
