A comprehensive textbook of mental health and the primary care setting. Gives practical advice on how practitioners in primary care can best respond to psychiatric presentations.
Primary care is the first port of call for people with mental health problems and it plays an increasingly important role in the provision of mental health care.
A multidisciplinary team of 38 chapter authors give a wide range of clinical and research perspectives.
It's designed so easier for GPs to use: jargon-free language, text broken up by summary boxes, key points summarised for each chapter, etc.
