Mental Health Care

Mental Health Care

Mental health care is designed to help persons manage their conditions under medical guidance. Unlike other medical issues, these don’t have physically painful symptoms, don’t manifest in easily identifiable ways and are often overlooked. Day to day life and general concerns make it difficult for a person to identify the triggers that stand at the basis of mental health conditions.

Our specialized GPs are trained to identify within each person if there is a mental health concern and the best course of treatment. Booking a long bulk billed appointment is the first step. This consultation helps the doctor assess if medication is required or if another specialist should be referred.

Antidepressants, anxiolytics, sedatives and antipsychotics are usual medications, but, however effective in some cases, not every person will need it. A Mental Health Care Plan can be developed for long term care and conditions management.

Mental Health Care focuses on:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Acute stress reaction
  • Tobacco abuse
  • Schizophrenia
  • Dementia
  • Drug abuse
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Affective psychosis
