About the Authors
  • 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.

    • A multi-author comprehensive text providing a single source of information across the range of psychiatric disorders as they affect men
    • Clinically relevant but scientifically based, helping to inform scientists as well as clinicians in how to deal with mental health problems in men
    • Contributions from leading experts in the field of mental health from across the globe discussing the most recent advances

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This unique text certainly lives up to its title Comprehensive Men's Mental Health … it's remarkably comprehensive. It covers developmental, neurobiological and psychosocial aspects of mental health in males. This is a unique vantage point and it is also an important counterpoint to other extant work that focuses on female gender. The balance of clinical knowledge and insights from current research is enviable. Congratulations to Professors Castle and Coghill and their team on this very interesting book.' Peter F. Buckley, Professor of Psychiatry and Dean of Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine
