In the diagnosis and treatment of depression, clinicians must base their knowledge and skills on robust and up-to-date evidence and appropriate systems of service delivery. Completely rewritten by new authors, this third edition of Fast Facts: Depression provides concise and clear descriptions of the features, identification and management of depression, presents the wider context of cause, cost, distribution and risk, and summarizes the latest evidence that underpins good practice in this area.
There are few medical handbooks that provide such a comprehensive and practical overview of current knowledge in this field. Fast Facts: Depression is suitable for healthcare professionals working in both primary care and specialist medical centers. In fact, it provides a depth of content that is ideal for anyone who wants to better understand depression as both an international public health problem and a common clinical mental health disorder.
