Abstract: Mental Health problems are common in medical practice. In general practice as many as one consultation in three may involve psychological problems and about a third of medical and surgical in-patients will show significant psychiatric morbidity. Although few doctors will enter psychiatry, the majority of psychiatric problems are dealt with by general practitioners in the community and specialists in other fields. It is therefore important for the medical undergraduate to be well versed in psychiatry, to know when and how to refer and to be familiar with the range of psychiatric facilities.
