Creek's Occupational Therapy and Mental Health is essential reading for students and practitioners across a wide range of health professions, capturing contemporary practice in mental health settings. Now fully updated in its sixth edition, it retains the clarity and scholarship associated with the renowned occupational therapist Jennifer Creek while delivering new knowledge in a fresh perspective.

Here readers can find everything they need on mental health for learning, practice, and continuing professional development. Complex topics are presented in an accessible and concise style without being oversimplified, aided by summaries, case studies, and questions that prompt critical reflection. The text has been carefully authored and edited by expert international educators and practitioners of occupational therapy, as well as a diverse range of other backgrounds. Service users have also co-authored chapters and commentaries. Evidence-based links between theory and practice are reinforced throughout.

This popular title will be an indispensable staple that OTs will keep and refer to time and again.
