      The current issue of Medical Clinics of North America, “Management of Psychiatric Disorders and Suicidal Behavior in the Twenty-First Century,” is a wonderful resource for primary care providers. Not only does it provide up-to-date information about some of the most important psychiatric disorders we see in our practices but also it provides information about intriguing new discoveries in psychiatry, such as the role of inflammation in depression, the importance of the microbiome in affective disorders, and the promising role that NMDA receptors play in psychiatric disorders and how that may lead to pharmacologic strategies for autism and perhaps also dementia.
      Psychiatry in the twenty-first century is as exciting as any field in medicine. I trust this issue will further your knowledge of psychiatry and its importance in primary care practice.
