Chaplaincy and Spiritual Care in Mental Heath Settings
By Jean Fletcher.
This edited collection about
good practice for mental health chaplains and other related professionals looks
at how spirituality is viewed across mental health fields. It identifies what
mental health chaplaincy is, how mental health chaplaincy interacts with other
organisations like the NHS, and what good practice means with examples of
positive and fulfilling experiences in mental health settings.
The chapters consider some
of the main issues of working with the mental health community, such as the
place of volunteers, the recovery process, religious diversity and patient
safety. They are followed by uplifting case studies, including service user
perspectives, to provide a valuable overall insight into mental health
chaplaincy and its context in wider mental health services.
