    It was a great session i had learned about psychosis it's early signs symptoms.
    The barriers in diagnosis of psychosis
    Factors influencing the diagnosis of psychosis.
    The available treatment facilities available for a person who diagnosed with psychosis
  • Evelyn Vallejo
    Simple course for medical professionals, especially for primary care physicians. Entertaining videos and graphics. Short and sweet. I think one question on the quiz might have had the wrong answer options (the one about the median time).
