Description:
In order to support best practices in mental health and addictions services, accurate and up-to-date information is required by family physicians who are frequently involved in assessment, support, and treatment of these problems. Additionally, clinicians need to be able to direct affected individuals and families to credible and accurate sources of information geared to supporting self-management activities. In particular, such information is needed in regard to depression, anxiety disorder, early psychosis, and substance use disorder, in view of the large burden of disease associated with these problems.
