It also provides some simple guidance on how best to care for someone with mental health difficulties. More detailed profession-specific learning sessions will be contained in later modules within this series.
The content and structure of the sessions was designed in collaboration with the RCGP. The session topics include Self-Harm, Psychological Therapies, Physical Health Care for Mental Health Patients and Medically Unexplained Symptoms.
