Mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, and substance abuse, are common and are the leading causes of disability worldwide. In addition, medical professionals often lack the time or background training to appropriately address mental health needs presented by patients in practice. A multidisciplinary approach, which includes optometry, offers a pragmatic method to deliver effective mental care to at risk patients. In this interactive one-hour (1) course, the speaker will educate doctors on identifying mental illnesses and using interprofessional care strategies to support patients.
