Mental Health Care: An Introduction for Health Professionals in Australia, 3rd Edition covers the challenges that nursing professionals will face in their everyday roles. This text discusses, in a jargon-free way, how to effectively help those who are struggling with mental health issues in a care setting. Videos with real clinicians and top researchers help bring relevancy to each chapter through engaging storytelling. Interactive capstone activities put the students in a simulated ‘real world’ scenario where they must apply their learning. There are also scores of local, curated content that show students the importance behind topics covered.

Delivered as a WileyPLUS Learning Space interactive online textbook, this rich digital resource brings the subject of mental healthcare to life with rich media, bespoke videos, interactives and revision materials embedded at the point of learning.
