** Now updated for 2015! **
This handbook has been developed as a resource for homeopaths, particularly those who are working outside of the conventional healthcare system. The information it contains is drawn from people with expertise in the field of mental healthcare, both conventional, and homeopathic. It is not designed to help improve the quality of your homeopathic prescribing; it is concerned purely with case management issues and will suggest strategies for dealing with challenging situations in practice. This handbook will not help you to become an expert in the field of mental health. Please refer to the information here alongside your professional code of ethics and practice and remember to seek advice whenever you feel out of your depth.
This handbook is free to download to current HAT members only here but its production has been funded entirely by the Homeopathy Action Trust. Please consider donating to our funds here or joining as a member here to allow us to fund more projects in the future, such as this handbook.
This handbook will be revised regularly and the latest version will always be on this website. Please don’t email copies to others that might soon become out of date, always guide others to download directly from this page. To be kept informed when revisions are available, join our quarterly newsletter mailing list here – you can unsubscribe at any time.
