Brain disease of whatever nature can give rise to mental symptoms and disorders that, on occasions, may interfere with the assessment, treatment, rehabilitation, and recovery of the underlying disease. Good practice enjoins clinicians to evaluate and manage these complications. This is easier said than done. Evaluation often requires suitable psychometric tools and questionnaires, and on occasions this cannot be separate from research; management should include neurobiological and psychosocial information, and be skilful enough to dovetail with the ongoing medical management.

Keywords:   psychometric tools, psychiatric assessment, brain disease, mental symptoms, treatment, rehabilitation
