165056 - Northside Group: Mental health matters - TRD and Bipolar

  • : Online

 

An opportunity for GPs and their colleagues to discuss the assessment management and support of people with eating disorders and explore ways of improving the quality of patient care

Relevance to General Practice

The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) says Australians are now presenting to their GP with mental health issues more than any other health concern. President of the RACGP Dr Bastian Seidel said mental health issues, including depression, mood disorders and anxiety, now dominate GPs’ time. “It is not musculoskeletal problems patients are presenting with most often, or cardiovascular disease – the stock standard medical presentations we always hear about,” Dr Seidel said. “It is psychological issues GPs are dealing with most of the time.” Mental health was cited as a top-three issue by 65% of female GPs and 53% of male GPs in the RACGP’s benchmark annual report, General Practice: Health of the Nation 2017. Dr Seidel said psychological issues are often connected with other issues that patients may be experiencing, including ill health and social circumstances.
