Social Care Professionals Working with Mental Health Clients


´╗┐It is estimated that, in the UK one in every four citizens will experience mental health problems at some point in their lives. In your work, many of you will be helping clients who are presenting with a whole range of overt mental health symptoms, or with their symptoms disguised by other factors (such as substance misuse).
