Mental Health

Mental health concerns can come in many forms; they can affect the way you think, your ability to get through day-to-day life, the ability to concentrate at work, or just feeling low and irritable from time to time.

If you are suffering from a mental health issue, a GP should be one of your first ports of call. Our GPs have extensive experience dealing with various mental health issues and support with mental health care plans for both everyday problems and more serious concerns, including:

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationships and sex
  • Trauma
  • Eating disorders
  • Addiction
  • Anger management
  • Bullying
  • Isolation and loneliness
  • Poor sleep
  • Grief and loss
  • Self-harm
  • Suicide
  • Psychotic disorders
  • Personality disorders.

Our GPs can assist and refer more complex mental health issues to specialists, such as a psychiatrist, psychologist, or other counsellor.

How can a GP help with mental health issues?

As physical and mental health are interconnected, visiting your local GP can be beneficial, as they can provide care for both physical and psychological wellness. They can diagnose, prepare a mental health care plan, provide treatment and refer you to a mental health expert when needed.
