CG123 Common mental health disorders: clinical case scenarios

NICE has developed a series of case studies for GPs to help apply the recommendations from the Common mental health disorders guideline to practice. The case studies which are informed by clinical experience, include contributions from GPs, clinical psychologists and psychiatrists to help GPs when considering the range of treatments and approaches that are recommended within the NICE guideline.

The resource is available in two formats, a PDF document for individual learning or a slide set version to help facilitate group learning. Please note, the PDF version of these scenarios includes a further three case studies, additional background information and copies of tools that can help support identification and diagnosis. It may be helpful to print, or have access to, a copy of the full PDF document for reference when using the slide set version of the scenarios.

The clinical case scenarios illustrate how the recommendations from CG123 Common mental health disorders: identification and pathways to care can be applied to the care of patients presenting within primary care settings. Learning objectives are to enable participants to apply the NICE clinical guideline CG123 to clinical practice in four key areas:

  • Recognising the signs and symptoms of common mental health problems (CMHPs)
  • Applying the stepped care model in routine practice
  • When and how to initiate investigations for CMHPs
  • The role of a GP in review and continuity of care
