Publications



The following .pdf booklets are taken from a few of the mental health organisations (as listed). I felt that the information in these I could not better in any way as they are very user friendly and easy to read and professionally produced. Some are not printable, so feel free to save them and read them at your leisure. You will need the .pdf reader Acrobat to read them, the link is provided if you do not have this installed on your machine. There are also some very good less computer intensive PDF readers, one example is called Foxit and this can be downloaded Here
