Praise for A Complete Guide to Primary Care Mental Health
'I think it is a great package. It is well presented, and the content is comprehensive and detailed... I particularly liked the wide range of issues covered. Overall, I was really impressed.' Daisy Forster, Graduate Mental Health Worker
'This would be very useful for GP Registrars (and some GPs who are rusty on their knowledge in this area) as we have to learn the same and here it all is on one CD. I think the whole CD set would be very useful for the graduate workers in mental health.' Dr Dilip Patel, GP, Middlesex
'I like the visual aspects of the CDs, and how it is thematically structured into specific areas very helpful.' Mary Steen, Royal College of Midwives
'It is excellent as a reference tool and gives me the knowledge and confidence to work with mothers with mental health issues.' Indrah Carter, Health Visitor
