    Summary: Primary care physicians are the largest prescribers of psychiatric medications in the US, and they provide the bulk of psychiatric diagnoses and treatment, especially in traditionally underserved areas. However, since psychiatric training in medical school and residency is often brief, many primary care physicians do not feel confident in treating psychiatric disorders. This book is designed to provide primary care physicians the tools to successfully diagnose and treat psychiatric disorders. Each chapter of this book is devoted to a different, major psychiatric disorder. The chapters are similar in their format for ease of use. Clinical descriptions of each disorder are included, as well as tools to help make a proper diagnosis. Appropriate treatment(s) for the diagnoses are reviewed in a stepwise fashion, targeted towards the non-psychiatric physician. Chapters also contain information on medical tests that may be appropriate to order to rule out medical conditions, as well as details on proper routine health screening for individuals on specific medications and/or mental health diagnoses. Written by experts in the field, Handbook of Psychiatric Disorders in Adults in the Primary Care Setting is a valuable resource to aid in the proper assessment and treatment of psychiatric disorders for the physicians who are most likely to see and treat patients with mental health disorders. Unlike psychiatric textbook that contain extensive, specialized information, this handbook contains high yield material for the busy primary care physician.
