  • Break out boxes which contain essential key knowledge
  • Clinical cases to help you understand the material in a clinical context
  • Unique graphic narratives which are especially useful for visual learners
  • End of chapter answers to the starter questions

The First Principles chapter clearly explains the key concepts and processes that underpin psychiatric disorders.

The Clinical Essentials chapter provides an overview of the symptoms and signs of psychiatric disorders, relevant history and examination techniques, investigations and management options.

The Emergencies chapter covers the principles of immediate care in situations, such as violent patients and suicidal behaviour.

5 Star Reviews:

"A great book for visual learners; with lots of diagrams and pictures and tables to explain key concepts in psychiatry. The text is clear and straight-forward throughout, with a focus on the important things that you need to know. I love the comic-strip-style case examples which bring the pages to life and get you thinking about the topic in the context of patients." Amazon reviewer

"This a great book - the chapters are clear and I love how each one begins with a patient; makes it much easier to learn the context when you can apply it to a case. There are great tables summarising learning points too - the one on personality disorders is especially useful." Amazon reviewer

"As a medical student, this book has been perfect for my mental health block. The section on Mental State Examination (MSE) is really helpful for OSCEs and the clinical scenarios are fantastic." Amazon reviewer
