about this item

This book considers ways to improve the health and social care of older people from minority and excluded communities by promoting anti-discriminatory practice for mental health professionals working with them. Contributed by mental health specialists from the UK, the 13 chapters examine the structural, social, and economic forces impacting people's experiences of aging and mental health, how intersecting inequalities can impact the lives of older people with mental health conditions, and how to develop anti-discriminatory practice. They discuss theories of aging, mental health, and discrimination, as well as care ethics and the intergenerational care contract; the importance of humanizing the mental health context; black, Asian, and minority ethnic communities; common mental health problems; the UK's Mental Capacity Act 2005 in the context of aging; the role of carers and their care; end-of-life issues and older people's mental health; working with interpreters in mental health; food and malnutrition; and issues facing those with learning disabilities, Gypsies and Travelers, homeless people, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, ******, and intersex older people.
