Depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, grief, suicidality and dealing with the suicidal death of a teammate, bipolar disease, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobias, and substance abuse are increasingly diagnosed in primary care sports medicine clinics. Employing a clinical case format, Mental Health Challenges in the Athletic Training Room: A Team Physician's Perspective provides a basic overview of the clinical features, diagnostic criteria, and screening tools that are appropriate for each of the aforementioned conditions. The DVD also focuses on the role of the team physician as a primary care provider, with an emphasis on judicious use of medications in athletes and the appropriate use of mental health professionals for comprehensive management of these life-impacting conditions.
