Health Professionals

Many General Practitioners through patient questions, concerns and their own assessment will be able to identify people suffering from depressive disorders and other common mental health problems. General Practitioners may provide psychoeducation or create a mental health care plan and refer their patient to a psychologist to begin the path of recovery.

Counselling in Melbourne and its team of clinical psychologists, general psychologists and counsellors have been successfully partnering with General Practitioners and Psychiatrists since 2007 from our Melbourne CBD office.

Our practitioners value collaborative and progressive approaches, treatments and therapies, which can be complementary to a patient’s treatment.

Patient confidentiality is assured and we aim to provide timely, specific and educative feedback of patients referred to Counselling in Melbourne.

The role of a General Practitioner in managing patients’ mental health issues cannot be understated. Traditionally General Practitioners will be the first health professional who starts a conversation with a patient about mental health and who can quickly assess if “something is not right”, referring them to an allied health professional as required.

Beyondblue has produced some excellent videos on starting the conversation.
