The SAGE Handbook of Mental Health and Illness is a landmark volume, which integrates the conceptual, empirical, and evidence-based threads of mental health as an area of study, research, and practice. It approaches mental health from two perspectives - firstly as a positive state of well-being and personal and social functioning and secondly as psychological difference or abnormality in its social context. Pilgrim, D. Pilgrim, David, et al.. SAGE Knowledge.
This bestselling textbook provides a clear overview of the major aspects of the sociology of mental health and illness. In this new edition, the authors update each chapter, taking into consideration recent social science and social psychiatric literature. Today, more than ever, it is quite a risk to write 'The Sociology' of anything. Moreover, as the wide-ranging references listed at the end of the book indicate, we continue to draw our material from sociology but also many other sources, including psychology and psychiatry. Sociological analyses of our topic are not offered only by sociologists. Since the previous edition was published in , good examples of this point from other disciplines have appeared, including Richard Bentall's Madness Explained and Christopher Dowrick's Beyond Depression from psychology and medicine respectively.
