about this item
This second edition of Mental Health Nursing for Children and Young People equips nurses and healthcare professionals with the essential skills and competencies needed when working with this important group of people. This new edition has been fully updated in light of the Cavendish Report and Willis Commission to ensure those working in CAMHS can continue to provide a high quality, evidence–based service to all children and young people with mental health problems and disorders, ensuring effective assessment, treatment and support for them and their families.
The book explores best practice in a variety of settings and addresses issues such as eating disorders, self–harm, ADHD, forensic mental health issues and misuse of drugs and alcohol in children and young people, as well as child protection, clinical governance, safeguarding and legal requirements. Furthermore, with young people contributing directly to several chapters, the book reflects the importance of involving them in planning, delivering and evaluating CAMHS services.
It is essential reading for all health and social care professionals and students working with children and young people, particularly those working in specialist child and adolescent mental health settings.
