Psychiatry in Primary Care: A Concise Canadian Pocket Guide is a comprehensive resource that supports the work of primary care practitioners who encounter mental health problems in their everyday practice.

This expanded and updated second edition reflects the latest evidence, using a "just the pearls" approach to providing clinically tested guidance on detecting and managing mental health problems within the primary care context. Topics range from depression, substance use and posttraumatic stress disorder to disability and insurance claims. This edition also reflects evolving technology, with extensive lists of web-based resources and apps that primary care practitioners can use and share with their patients to complement treatment.

With contributions from more than 40 experts across Canada, Psychiatry in Primary Care features established screening tools, diagnostic criteria and guidance around implementing pharmacological and psychosocial interventions.
