«'This is a hugely welcome collection on volunteering in mental health for underserved populations. It covers critical ethical principles, and provides practical tips. It will be useful for those contemplating volunteering, or about to begin, and also for people with additional experience. I particularly valued the emphasis on learning from partners and on sustainability, and the framing of volunteering as part of building equitable long-term partnerships,. The book importantly alludes to planning for ongoing mentoring of colleagues in the host setting after the volunteer is back in their usual workplace. Volunteering in global mental health is likely to be a hugely rewarding life-changing experience and this book will inspire many to take the next step.'
