Mental health problems in young people from culturally diverse backgrounds can be helped through professional partnerships across fields such as prevention, education, welfare and juvenile justice. Such partnerships deal with a range of issues from depression and vulnerability, to self-harm and sever psychiatric disorder. The monograph illustrates both the genesis of mental health problems for young people and ways in which such problems can be addressed and alleviated. This monograph is useful for mental health professionals, school counsellors, migrant health workiers and those interested in adolescent wellbeing in the broadest sense. "It is written in an accessible style for the intelligent lay reader." (Professor Michael Farley, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Prince of Wales Hospital and Sydney Children's Hospital).
