How to help with mental health.
Mental health is a component of 33% of presentations to GP’s and the most prominent cited reason for ‘fit notes’. In addition, people with long-term conditions are two to three times more likely to experience mental health problems than the general population. It is therefore crucial that GP’s and Nurses keep up to date with diagnostic criteria and how best to treat mental health difficulties.
This informal study day is designed for GPs, nurses and registered healthcare practitioners.
- Understand and know how to explain the different referral services and treatments to patients
- Knowledge of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual V (DSM V) criteria for core diagnosis
- Able to move conversations from physical presentations to mental health enquiry where appropriate
- Management of chaotic patients
