    Only looked at the PDF file, but it is excellent. Thanks to those who produced it. :thumbup::)

    Just one suggestion, on the last page (31):

    CBT is supportive but not curative.

    I would prefer:

    CBT can be supportive but not curative.

    The PDF only contains the slides. They give the gist of the presentation but it's worth listening the audio, too, for the full talk.

    Slide 7 is not exactly surprising to too many of us here but still shocking to read it so bluntly stated (refusal of referrals).

    Just managed to view (and listen to) this. TBH I :cry::cry: but that was from it so straightforwardly introducing a GP to my illness. Thanks.
