  • Intelligent Kindness: Reforming the Culture of Healthcare: (RCPsych Publications: June 2011)
    John Ballatt and Penelope Campling.
    Intelligent Kindness is a powerful new approach to healthcare reform. Ballatt and Campling argue that the NHS is a system that invites society to value and attend to its deepest common interests; it is a vital expression of community and one that can improve if society, patients and staff can reconnect to these deeper values. To do so will improve quality and patient experience, as well as morale, effectiveness, efficiency and value for money.
  • Social Inclusion and Mental Health (RCPsych Publications: June 2010)
    Edited by Jed Boardman, Alan Currie, Helen Killaspy and Gillian Mezey. This book is concerned with social exclusion and mental disorder and the steps that psychiatrists and mental health workers can take to facilitate the social inclusion of people with mental health problems. Alongside contributions from psychiatrists and mental health professionals, people with mental illness and their carers write about the helplessness they sometimes feel when faced with mental health services, the challenges of caring for someone, and what might be done to aid the journey to recovery. The book encompasses a wealth of experience and evidence supported by research and everyday practice.
