A A Fido, A Al Mughaiseeb

Abstract

The authors analysed the psychiatric profile of 208 general hospital patients referred for psychiatric consultation, about half of these patients presented with parasuicidal behaviour. The diagnoses of depression and adjustment disorders predominated. Characteristics of the referred patients, source of referral and main forms of psychiatric intervention are documented. Means to promote good relationships between psychiatrists and physicians are suggested. The need for a better liaison psychiatric service is emphasised.
