The range of interventions for management is very extensive either in terms of the range of drugs, or psychosocial interventions.
In this process some of the India specific emphasis is missing, for example the importance of family in the treatment is mentioned but not adequately elaborated.
India launched the National Mental Health Programme in and provided stimulus for a wide variety of non-institutional initiatives. One of the common themes of all these initiatives, whether it is the integration of mental health care with general health care or the different places of mental health care in the community, is the involvement of a wide range of non-specialist personnel for mental health care.
In different parts of India, volunteers suicide prevention, disaster mental health care, drug dependence care , school and college teachers, ex-patients drug dependence , family members of the persons with mental disorders schizophrenia, mental retardation, dementia , short-term trained personnel half-way homes , and health workers and primary care doctors are discharging a wide variety of mental health care tasks.
This initiative has met a large gap in the availability of specialist mental health professionals. In this context the book under review will be a resource for these personnel and the trainers of these different categories of personnel.
The book in its current form has one limitation. It is too comprehensive to meet the limited mental health training needs of either the medical students, nursing personnel or paramedical students or general practitioners. Further, too much of information, in terms of either theory, or the variety of interventions tends to limit the ease of acceptance of the mental health care responsibilities.
