This unit builds on the Level 1 foundational material addressed in unit CNA740 and is a co‐ requisite unit to CNA743. The unit addresses the issues relevant to the treatment setting, such as hospital based and community based mental health care within an ecological perspective. Issues of mental health promotion and illness prevention, crisis intervention, psychiatric rehabilitation and recovery are examined, including the contributions of non‐ government and voluntary agencies. You will also be introduced to what many describe as sub‐specialty mental health areas, such as child and adolescent; older persons and the specialist areas of forensic/correctional and alcohol and other drugs. Finally, issues relevant to clinical supervision and clinical practice development will be explored with you.
