About this book

Introduction

Gender & Mental Health is an exciting textbook written from a policy perspective. Based on up-to-date information from Europe and the United States, it focuses not only on the individual experience of mental disorder for both men and women, but also on a range of mental health policy issues, including law and crime. It will be extremely useful to a broad range of students (sociology, social policy and gender studies) and professionals (social work, nursing, legal and medical).
