Exposure to Psychotropic Medications and Other Substances during Pregnancy and Lactation: A Handbook for Health Care Providers
We know that 25 per cent of Canadians smoke,1 five per cent drink alcohol daily and 10 per cent report symptoms consistent with alcohol or illegal drug dependence. We can conclude, then, that many of the over 400,000 Canadian women who give birth each year may have used such substances before they knew they were pregnant.
A practical resource that supports primary care providers who deal with challenging mental health problems in their daily practices. Written by 27 leading psychiatrists and other mental health experts from across Canada, the book includes realistic, evidence-based guidance on detecting and managing mental health problems and illnesses.
