Free text This book "presents general information about mental health conditions associated with the childcare population, illustrated by case examples and set in a context of helpful information" - these include addresses of centres and organisations where carers and young people can find help. It is meant to add to the understanding of the relation between child care and protection, and the mental health needs for the children involved. It is recommended reading for all those who are in close contact with, and responsible for children under local authority care, such as foster carers and residential and field social workers.
