Description :


In Canada, at least 5 percent of the population suffers from a serious, persistent mental illness such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. While recent years have seen many changes and improvements in the way we respond to the needs of mentally ill persons, there remain divisions of opinion among stakeholder groups about the way mental health services are delivered. Community Mental Health in Canada offers a timely, critical overview of the provision of public mental health services in Canada, looking at where we have come from, the current situation, and where we may be heading.

Description :


Child and Youth Mental Health in Canada is the first book to cover child and adolescent mental health from a practical, settings-based approach. Rather than focusing on disorder etiology or diagnostic criteria, the cases in this book emphasize how mental health concerns manifest themselves in a variety of service contexts. Each chapter, contributed by a practitioner in the human services, provides an overview of the setting to create the context for practice. The contributors present appropriate interventions and activities for that setting, including interventions specific to the unique needs of refugee, indigenous, and LGBTQ children and youth. Covering trauma-based behaviours and attachment difficulties, practitioner wellness, residential care, in-patient care, school settings, family homes, recreational settings, secured programs, and juvenile justice, this collection will help to prepare future front-line professionals to effectively provide mental health support across milieus. This book is suitable for undergraduate child and adolescent mental health courses in child and youth care, psychology, child and family studies, and social work.

`An unparalleled national accomplishment, Mental Disorder in Canada is a vital contribution to what we know about the distribution of mental disorders in Canada. Drawing mainly on the findings of the Canadian Community Health Survey (one of the largest national studies of mental disorders ever undertaken), the chapters reflect the analysis and interpretation of almost every major psychiatric epidemiologist across the country. This is a must read for all who are interested in those types of disorders that cut sharply into quality of life and which deserve more public health attention than they often receive.'

Considering the period from colonialism to the present, they examine such issues as the rise of the insanity plea, the Victorian asylum as a tourist attraction, the treatment of First Nations people in western mental hospitals, and post-World War II psychiatric research into LSD.

Description :


The Saskatchewan Mental Hospital at Weyburn has played a significant role in the history of psychiatric services, mental health research, and providing care in the community. Its history provides a window to the changing nature of mental health services over the 20th century. Built in 1921, Saskatchewan Mental Hospital was considered the last asylum in North America and the largest facility of its kind in the British Commonwealth. A decade later the Canadian Committee for Mental Hygiene cited it as one of the worst facilities in the country, largely due to extreme overcrowding. In the 1950s the Saskatchewan Mental Hospital again attracted international attention for engaging in controversial therapeutic interventions, including treatments using LSD. In the 1960s, sweeping healthcare reforms took hold in the province and mental health institutions underwent dramatic changes as they began transferring patients into communities. As the patient and staff population shrunk, the once palatial building fell into disrepair, the asylum’s expansive farmland went out of cultivation, and mental health services folded into a complicated web of social and correctional services. Erika Dyck’s "Managing Madness" examines an institution that housed people we struggle to understand, help, or even try to change.

Aboriginal peoples in Canada have diverse cultures but share common social and political challenges that have contributed to their experiences of health and illness. This collection addresses the origins of mental health and social problems and the emergence of culturally responsive approaches to services and health promotion. Healing Traditions is not a handbook of practice but a resource for thinking critically about current issues in the mental health of indigenous peoples. Cross-cutting themes include: the impact of colonialism, sedentarization, and forced assimilation; the importance of land for indigenous identity and an ecocentric self; and processes of healing and spirituality as sources of resilience.

Description :


Human migration is a global phenomenon and is on the increase. It occurs as a result of 'push' factors (asylum, natural disaster), or as a result of 'pull' factors (seeking economic or educational improvement). Whatever the cause of the relocation, the outcome requires individuals to adjust to their new surroundings and cope with the stresses involved, and as a result, there is considerable potential for disruption to mental health. This volume explores all aspects of migration, on all scales, and its effect on mental health. It covers migration in the widest sense and does not limit itself to refugee studies. It covers issues specific to the elderly and the young, as well as providing practical tips for clinicians on how to improve their own cultural competence in the work setting. The book will be of interest to all mental health professionals and those involved in establishing health and social policy.
