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. Shaping Minds
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.
