Each year one in seven (13.6%) 4-11 year-olds in Australia experience a diagnosable mental health condition, with externalising problems the most common.
Parent-based interventions have a broad empirical base for supporting children’s mental health, particularly externalising disorders .
GPs are the first point of contact for most Australians, and GPs have a crucial role to play in strengthening infant and child emotional and social wellbeing, and recognising when a child may be at risk of developing mental health difficulties.
By offering training in skills for conducting effective parenting consultations, GPs will be more familiar with the signs of early mental health and behavioural issues with children aged up to 12, have conversations with parents about their child’s development and health, and provide evidence-based intervention based on brief behavioural parent training approaches.
