Overview

Primary care is usually the first port of call for people with mental health problems and plays an increasingly important role in developing and delivering mental health services. Indeed, 90% of all patients with mental health problems (including 30-50% of all those with serious mental illness) only use primary care services. How can practitioners in primary care best respond to psychiatric presentations? In this book, internationally respected authors provide a conceptual background and dispense practical advice for the clinician. They discuss ways of improving joint working between primary and secondary care, as well as issues affecting the professional development of all practitioners within primary care teams. Key features:
• Practical advice
• Focus on improving services
• Critical analysis of the emerging evidence
• A user-centred approach, emphasising recovery
• Educational strategies to develop knowledge and skills of the primary care team.
