Maddy Loat is a clinical psychologist currently working in Acute Inpatient Services within Camden & Islington Mental Health Foundation Trust. Prior to training as a psychologist at University College London, she worked in a number of therapeutic communities and developed an interest in how social processes, especially those of mutual support, affect mental health.
'I hope that professionals and persons experiencing mental health problems take heed, and read Loat's admirable book. -- European Journal of Social Work (...)this book is a vital read as a reminder to all mental health professionals of the importance of mutual support for on-going mental health, especially those who have responsibility for commissioning services. -- Professional Social Work Overall I found this book well presented, an enjoyable and an easy read... In closing I would recommend this book for anyone with an interest in self-help groups, looking for a different approach than the medical model in mental health and especially for people who want practical advice in setting up a group. -- Dramatherapy I am happy to recommend this little book to anyone interested in accessing or establishing any form of mutual support. -- Journal of Mental Health
