GPs are at the front line in the diagnosis and treatment of mentally ill people. Schizophrenia poses particularly difficult problems for them, for unlike most illness it distorts a person's ability to interpret reality and respond appropriately. This report, based on a conference held by the Department of Health in collaboration with the Royal College of General Practitioners and Research and Development for Psychiatry, presents readers with many insights into schizophrenia itself, the effects it has on patients and families, what can be done to help them now, and areas worthy of further study - with emphasis on general practice and other primary care support networks.
