Cover illustration by Sharmila Coutinho for Where There is No Psychiatrist, second edition (2017), written by Vikram Patel and Charlotte Hanlon
The newly published second edition of Where There is No Psychiatrist is a practical manual of mental health care for community health workers, primary care nurses, social workers and primary care doctors, particularly in low-resource settings. With over 200 illustrations to aid understanding and simple explanations that avoid jargon, the manual will enable health workers with no specialist training in mental health to help people with mental health problems in their communities and to know when to refer them for specialist assessment. The second edition of this widely used manual will be made freely available as an eBook thanks to generous donations of members and supporters of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.
