We are pleased to inform you about the availability of the book 'Psychiatric Presentations in General Practice - A guide to holistic management' authored by Dr K. S. Jacob and Dr Anju Kuruvilla both Professors of Psychiatry at Mental Health Centre, CMC Vellore. 
 
This book contains a wealth of information and is a practical guide to common mental health conditions encountered in general medical practice. It is not an unusual experience in mission hospitals, of coming across patients with presentations that do not come under diagnoses that we are familiar with, leading us to speculate about next line of the treatment plan. In such situations, non-psychiatrists can be apprehensive to make the accurate diagnosis unless it is very obvious. We trust that the simple guidelines and systematic approach for handling non-organic illnesses given in the book will be of great use and empower especially the non-psychiatric health professionals. The book is intended for medical, nursing and paramedical students, general practitioners, non-psychiatric physicians and counsellors as somatization disorders are encountered at all levels of healthcare.
 
The authors have generously donated few copies for free distribution to mission hospitals. As only a limited number of books from this edition are available, those interested may contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thank you.
