This chapter outlines the origins and main features of mental health interventions that are commonly used in practice. An intervention is considered to be any aspect of care for which additional specialist education and training are required, and which often leads to people becoming accredited through statutory bodies that regulate their practice. Although the interventions described in this chapter are not unique to mental health nursing, the therapists who use these approaches were often initially trained in mental health nursing. The interventions described are drawn from particular perspectives and predominantly psychological theories that seek to explain the origins, nature, and manifestation of mental health and illness.
