EXCLUSIVE TO GPs 

Australia is facing a mental health crisis. With severely limited access to psychiatrists and our public system already stretched thin, GPs are faced with a monumental task.

 

The GP Psychiatry Support Line is here to help!


By calling 1800 16 17 18, GPs are connected directly with psychiatrists who can offer their expert advice regarding the mental health needs of your patients.

GPs May Call to Discuss:

 

  • Medication Advice

  • Diagnostic Clarification

  • Risk & Safety

  • Management Planning

  • General Professional Counsel

EMPOWERING PRIMARY CARE

We strive to support GPs and their patients whose conditions are able to be treated within a primary care setting.

"It is not about triaging or referring patients back into an overburdened mental health system. It's about unlocking mental health solutions and making an immediate difference.
