Primary care health professionals know all too well that they are on the front lines in the provision of mental health care in Canada. At the same time, they are constrained by numerous factors in trying to recognize and meet the needs of their patients: time, knowledge, skills, supports and specialized referral access. In addition, the stigma that persists around mental health and addiction disorders can limit both patient disclosure and physician inquiry. Until now, no single Canadian book was targeted to meet these professional needs and ultimately the clinical needs of patients and families.

Psychiatry in Primary Care: A Concise Canadian Pocket Guide is intended to meet some of these needs in a practical and feasible way. It minimizes dry information about etiology and pathogenesis to focus on rapid diagnosis, intervention, education and support.

Key features:

• quick access, useful tools, established diagnostic criteria
• realistic, evidence-based guidance on detecting and managing mental health problems and illnesses
• topics ranging from depression, anxiety and personality disorders to psychotherapy in primary care and managing mental health–related disability and insurance claims, suicide risk, parenting issues and more
• useful approaches to pharmacotherapies and psychosocial interventions
• chapters by 27 leading contributors from across Canada
• the best things for primary care physicians to ask, do and recommend.
