It defines and explains the main symptoms and syndromes of mental illness encountered in clinical practice.

Now in its seventh edition, the text has been fully revised and updated by renowned psychiatry professor Femi Oyebode. It provides a masterful introduction to this difficult area that will challenge the reader intellectually, while at the same time supporting his or her learning.
