    This is quite long - probably too long for many people.

    Anyway, I found it interesting.

    It talks about studies that found various (non-small) percentages of psychiatric patients had missed medical diagnoses.

    It talks about general issues to be conscious of.

    It goes through
    Psychosis-
    Patients that Appear Out of Touch with Reality

    Anxiety

    Depression

    And lists symptoms to look out for that suggest a physical diagnosis, specific conditions and drugs that can cause such conditions/symptoms.
