General Practice and Mental health

Mental health issues are recognized as a major public health problem today and the management of mental health problems plays an increasing burden on health services. General practitioners are successful in managing uncertainty in clinical practice. It is not always necessary to make a diagnosis in order to make a management decision, or determine a course of treatment. It is important that general practice and primary care develop their own philosophies and management with regard to psychological disorder, which takes uncertainty and our present imperfect understanding of symptoms and disorders into account. The mental health care system in the world is over-burdened, underfunded and highly unorganized despite attempts to move mental illness out of the shadows and onto the radar of policy and decision-makers. In fact, the Public Health Agency reported that neuropsychiatric disorders had the highest expenditure for direct health services and the third-highest expenditure for indirect costs to the economy, related to illness, disability or premature death. In 2008, the economic burden of mental illness was estimated to be $51 billion annually, a nearly 7-fold increase from a 1993 analysis that estimated the burden to be around $7.3 billion. Forecasts approximate that direct costs related to mental illness over the next 30 years are likely to exceed $2.3 trillion. For further information GP conferences and Medical conferences
