      Mental Health 1 – Introduction

      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.
