This book harnesses the collective wisdom of African Psychiatry and therefore serves as a departure point for ongoing efforts to refine practice in accordance with the best practice and local needs.
There are a number of chapters dedicated to a range of conditions, covering the most prevalent as well as some emerging conditions ranging from HIV related psychopathology to eating disorders. Additionally, the book provides a focus on a related and pertinent Sub-specialist field ? that of neuropsychiatry.

There is a chapter devoted to child and adolescent psychiatry - a sub-specialist area that is sorely underserviced. The elderly too are not forgotten in this book. Whilst much is spoken of the youth, it is well to consider the ageing members of society. Psychiatry and the law have also been adequately tackled through a chapter on forensic mental health.

The book is a ?must-read? for academicians, researchers and practitioners in different areas of mental health. Postgraduate students pursuing various aspects of mental health, undergraduate medical students and diploma medical students will find this book quite ideal.
