Abstract:

Mental illness is an increasing concern of government health services
across the globe. It is timely, therefore, that community education about
mental illness is subject to discourse analysis. <i>Shaping Minds</i>
explores how the psychoeducational message is presented to Chinese-speaking
audiences in China, Taiwan and Australia. The book uniquely examines
community education materials in a language rarely examined by discourse
analysts, but which is nevertheless spoken by around a fifth of the world's
population and constitutes an important 'minority' language throughout the
Western world. The book identifies the discursive features that
characterise the Chinese-language texts and analyses them cross-culturally,
highlighting the impact of cultural traditions, political systems and
dominant conceptions of society. These insights into how Chinese-language
community health pamphlets and handbooks are positioned to shape the minds
of readers will engage both discourse analysts and mental health
professionals providing services to Chinese-speaking communities across the
globe.
