In this new book, Chris Heginbotham and Karen Newbigging expand on their toolkit published for the National Mental Health Development Unit (2011) and explore the current context for commissioning across the entire health and social care sector. Taking a broad approach to asset-based public health, the authors outline a programme of action for commissioning appropriate interventions to achieve evidence-based and values-based improvements in all areas of health and social care.

The authors focus on positive mental health identifying equity gap and gradient analysis and community engagement as key resources; and in taking a life-course approach examine commissioning for children, working-age adults and older people.

This book will be valuable reading for those taking postgraduate courses in health and wellbeing, health promotion and public health. It will also be recommended for those studying leadership and management in a healthcare context at postgraduate level.
