This text, by a well regarded writing team, examines the relationship between the knowledge base of mental health professionals, evidence about inequalities and mental health service utilisation. Starting with a critical appraisal of traditional psychiatric epidemiology, it moves into an exploration of the inequalities created by familial and neighbourhood influences, service contact and challenges during the life span. Controversies in mental health debates, about violence and different forms of psychiatric treatment, are discussed within a framework of social inequalities.

Industry Reviews

'A sense of justice is a fundamental aspect of human development. It's surprising that so few books on mental health tackle the psychological impact of injustice. Pilgrim and Rogers address this omission head on, in an ambitious and impressive work that gets to the heart of the relationship between socio-economic inequalities and mental distress.' - Lynne Friedli, mentalhealth today
