Mental Health and HIV Infection provides an up-to-date overview of the mental health consequences and of the kind of psychological, psychopharmaological and community forms of intervention available to deal with the adverse psychological effects of HIV infection. Divided into three parts, the book examines psychological and brain-related consequences of HIV infection, key areas of intervention, and three areas of controversial debate: euthanasia, psychoimmunology and complementary therapies. Assuming no specialist psychological, psychiatric or medical knowledge, this book is important reading for caregivers and healthcare workers to HIV positive individuals and their families, nurses, psychologists and counsellors.
