Book Review: Child and Adolescent mental health services


Edited by Richard Williams and Michael

Oxford University Press ISBN 0198508441,

Star Rating: 5/5

Child and adolescent mental health services are currently
undergoing a significant reconfiguration. This book will prove
invaluable to those involved such as stakeholders, and
commissioners in making policy and planning services, writes Val

It has chapters from respected multidisciplinary professionals,
which give much breadth to what is a very readable book. What I
particularly like is being able to dip into relevant chapters,
which are succinctly addressed themes in themselves, and cover all
aspects of child mental health.

What could be a better recommendation than the fact I have
already put into practice some of the contributors’ suggestions
when thinking about providing services which address the challenges
of providing a multi-agency, preventive and specialist service with
our partner agencies?
