Abstract

To facilitate recognition of psychiatric and addictive disorders within primary care settings, the development of a primary care manual to diagnose mental disorders is described. The manual, DSM-IV-PC, is compatible with the full DSM-IV and was developed by both psychiatrists and primary care physicians. Symptom-based clinical algorithms are described to demonstrate the format of the manual, which the authors hope will promote educational, clinical, and research collaboration between psychiatrists and primary care physicians.
