About this item

Research has established that there are efficacious psychological therapies for most common mental disorders. In Towards a Mental Health System That Works, psychologist Michael J Scott details the reforms necessary to ensure that consumers of services receive an evidence-based treatment.

This book examines:

  • the social significance of interventions that target mental-wellbeing and psychological disorder
  • why treatments are ‘lost in translation’ from research to routine practise
  • steps that can be taken towards a translation that better recognises the complexity of research and ensures fidelity to an evidence-based treatment protocol
  • the deleterious effects of current provision on clients and therapists

Towards a Mental Health System that Works is a valuable resource for therapists, mental health practitioners, clinical commissioning groups and politicians, enabling them to critically evaluate service provision, distil what constitutes cost-effective evidence based mental health practice across the whole spectrum of disorders and client populations, and chart a new direction. It also serves as a guide to consumers of mental health services, their friends and family, allowing them to understand what they are likely to experience and what they can demand.
