    My understanding is that 6 management stations and one history and one examination station in the mornings.

    1. Agoraphobia and desensitization [ perhaps explain desensitization]
    2. ECT [ management] repeating - might not be a straight forward one !!!
    3. Exposure to children plus depression/grief [ mostly likely indecent exposure]
    4. Counselling about genetic risk of Alzheimer's dementia.
    5. Body dysmorphic disorder - history taking
    6. Management of dissociative stupor
    7. Son with LD and partner pregnant - angry mother [ might be about sterilisation - College can't think of anything else. However this is not about any different scenarios, this is more about communication skills dealing with an angry relatives]
    8. NMS/?serotonin syndrome. Reaction to Olanzapine.

    1. Lower limb examination
    2. Mmse [not sure if its MMSE, as its copyrighted, but we do them and reading the info carefully might gives us cues - ? vascular and which lobe is affected ]

    3. Psychotic depression - history
    4. Alcohol history - history/impact
    5. Post man psychosis [favourite in Jan CASC, many might have failing this station hence repeating]
    6. Hyperprolatcinoma - explanation and management
    7. Leave for a patient - risk assessment
    8. MSE injection cancer(only speculating perhaps primary delusion as patient might have an injection and thinking about cancer, or health anxiety, however the task is MSE)

    3. Etiololgy of Schizophrenia

    4. Opiate hx
    5. Lithium in bipolar
    6. Capacity assessment in prisoner with neck lacerations[ It seems like Jan casc has been overseen by a forensic psychiatrist hence lots of prison related stations]
