Mental Health

The case study Working with Mental Illness deals with a family situation where more than one person experiences mental health problems. It focuses on the practice issues raised by working with family members who are both clients and carers. It highlights tensions between intervening and developing an empowering practice, enabling clients to manage their own difficulties.
