Although research shows that there is a silent crisis in men's mental health, there remains surprisingly little literature on the subject. This important textbook provides up-to-date, practical and evidence-based information on how mental health issues affect men and the way treatments should be offered to them. Key opinion leaders from across the globe have been brought together to offer much-needed understanding about the socio-politico-economic context of men's lives today as well as ethnic and cultural effects and genetic, epigenetic and gene-environment interaction. Clinically focused chapters cover topics such as suicide and self-harm, violence, sociopathy and substance misuse in men; depression, anxiety and related disorders; and psychotic and cognitive disorders. The book uses a lifespan approach to assessment and treatment, accounting for age and developmental phase. An invaluable source of information for clinical specialists and trainees in psychiatry, psychology, and mental health nursing as well as social workers, and occupational therapists.
