Rural Psychiatric Services. A Collaborative Model

Rural Psychiatric Services. A Collaborative Model

I M Kaufmann. Can Fam Physician.


Psychiatric services are difficult to obtain in rural communities because few psychiatrists practise outside urban centres. Family physicians who are willing to develop their skills with the support of their psychiatrist colleagues could alleviate this problem. This article describes a community mental health clinic where a family physician acts as psychiatric consultant.
