‘Professor Pilgrim in this 4th edition of his book on key concepts in mental health has one again delivered on his promise. These are really important and significant issues that affect mental health service users, carers and health and social care professionals and practitioners. At no time does the book minimise the significance nor complexity associated with these themes.

Pilgrim includes definitions, key points and further reading in each section which are immensely valuable, making it a must for academics’ reading lists.’
‘Pilgrim provides a text here that is broad-ranging in scope; identifying and critically considering conceptual, policy and practice matters. The written style and structure of the text is accessible to a wide audience; with a clear and commanding presentation of technical detail in addition to thought-provoking examples, philosophical and sociological analyses. This latest edition builds upon the successes of those which have come before and provides a valuable go-to resource for students, lecturers, researchers and practitioners alike.’
‘I can highly recommend this book. The chapters cover in detail all the main topics around mental health. Clear, concise and refreshingly up-to-date.
