Child Mental Health in Primary Care
This book helps general practitioners, health visitors and other professionals working in primary care to assess, manage and refer children and adolescents with mental health problems. School medical officers, social workers and educational psychologists, many of whom are in the front line of mental health provision for children and young people, will also find it particularly useful. Each problem is covered in a uniform way, with definitions, assessment outlines, detailed management options and indications for referral. Numerous case examples further illuminate aspects of many conditions. The book supports service provision in the new primary care environment, and forms a comprehensive practical guide to the full range of difficulties and disabilities affecting the mental health of children and young people.
