Event description

Description


General Practitioners (GPs) are often the first point of contact for patients experiencing mental health issues and the most common providers of mental health services. Although GPs commonly see high-prevalence disorders, most will also encounter a range of less common mental health problems, such as psychosis. Medication, a useful therapeutic adjunct, is commonly used as part of the management of mental health-related problems.
