Your Questions Answered

This book, written in the popular questions-and-answer format of the YQA series, gives succinct, accessible information enabling primary care doctors to understand and treat patients with all types of depression. Although primarily aimed at students and general practitioners, the book should also be of value to other professionals involved in the day to day care of depressed patients - psychiatric nurses, psychologists and social workers. It may also be of value to patients and their families.
