An association between a MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL and a MAIN SPECIALTY which for the period of time of the association reflects the main psychiatric specialty activity for the PATIENT subject to the MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL. In cases where a PATIENT is receiving psychotherapy as well as substantial psychiatric input, the general psychiatric specialty should be used.
The main specialty may change during the course of the MENTAL HEALTH CARE SPELL. This will end the previous association and start a new one.
