General Introduction to Psychiatry

Psychiatry and Mental Health issues are important considerations in Emergency Medicine and part of the Clinical Phase 2 curriculum at the University of Nottingham.  Therefore we were delighted when Dr James Ellison, Consultant Psychiatrist with a special interest in Substance Misuse joined the pod in DREEAM to record with us.  

This first podcast looks at a general approach to patients with a Psychiatric condition with focus on patients with:

  • Depression
  • Psychosis
  • Personality Disorder 

James gives great advice in talking to patients with these conditions as well how to approach mental heath in general.  

Here is the Mind website James mentioned, the leaflet on borderline personality disorder he mentioned can be found here and the Royal College of Psychiatrists leaflet A-Z can be found here.
