We don't need any more "expletive" training we need more than a few minutes to deal with their problem, proper resources to refer to that don't try to bounce every referral they get and a focus on making peoples lives better through education, decent jobs, better diet, more exercise, more social cohesion and less stress in their lives. We are the experts at seeing acute anxiety and depression, not MIND or secondary care who have a completely different workload!
