Our state and public mental health institutions are the locus of care for numerous patients with neuropsychiatric disorders. Links between psychiatric symptoms and medical diseases have long been noted; however, a nonintegrated approach has interfered with patients obtaining appropriate treatment. Neuropsychiatry and Mental Health Services examines the importance of an integrated approach to neuropsychiatric conditions and looks at ways to overcome the difficulties in assessing medical disorders in psychiatric populations. The book's contributors address neuropsychiatric disorders and their costs and implications on policy. Particular attention is devoted to epidemiology and providing clinical guidance for work in public settings.
Specifically, it covers: * Epidemiology and the recognition of neuropsychiatric disorders in mental health settings* The prevalence of medical disorders in psychiatric settings, screening strategies and situations in which an organic cause for a psychiatric syndrome should be considered* The neuropsychiatry of aggressive behavior, dementia, HIV-1 infection, sexual deviation, substance abuse, and tardive dyskinesia* The role of neuropsychiatry in providing care for specific populations such as the elderly, the homeless, prisoners, and persons with developmental disabilities* Recommendations for implementing medical screening and suggestions for improving the quality of neuropsychiatric care in public mental health settings Complete with extensive references, charts, and tables, this practical volume will be indispensable to clinicians and policymakers alike seeking to better understand the needs of patients with neuropsychiatric disorders and to improve the care they receive.
