With increasing international emphasis on care in the community and pressure on resources, the prevention of mental illness within primary care is becoming an important consideration. Up to a third of patients presenting to primary care services are suffering from psychological problems and the large majority are dealt with by the primary health care team. Within this volume, experts from a wide range of mental health care disciplines discuss issues ranging from primary prevention with identification of risk through to early identification of problem symptoms and the effective management of long-term mental illness. With full reference to the current state of research, emphasis has been given to practical measures that can be readily utilised in the primary care setting. This handbook will serve as an invaluable resource for all those with interests in the protection and conservation of mental health. This book was highly commended in the Primary Care category of the British Medical Association Book Award.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... a remarkable book ... There is a great deal of practical wisdom in this book, which goes a long way to de-mystifying even the more alarming psychiatric disorders. It is a book that should be read, not left to fester on a shelf ... I was genuinely inspired by the prospect of just how much good might be achieved by a well-motivated, holistically informed primary health care team.' Scott Weich, Psychological Medicine
' ... a clear exposition of the current findings ... highly relevant to the needs of busy practitioners and their professional partners in primary care.' Christopher Dowrick, BMJ
"The book...is an invaluable resource book for health care personnel in general practice. The goal to cover this vast territory without leaving anything untouched reminds me of Nietzsche's Zarathustra who attempted to accomplish the unaccomplishable." Mrs. Eydis Sveinbjarnardottir, RN, MS, Health Policy
"While the book is likely to aid in early detection and intervention, it also demonstrates the crevasse created by mental illness in society." Kathryn J.Zerbe, MD Bulletin of Menninger Clinic
"...this authoritative guide offers a wealthe of practical and research-based information for members of this specialty. The modest title belies a text packed with notable facts and tables to help primary care providers render primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention of mental illness." Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic
