onsumer and carer perspective for GP mental health training


beyondblue and the General Practice Mental Health Standards Collaboration (GPMHSC) have developed this fact sheet to assist GPs to understand the perspectives of people living with anxiety and depression, including their friends, family and carers. It looks at common issues and concerns that people experience when seeking assistance from their GP.

The GPMHSC accredits training providers to undertake Mental Health Skills Training (MHST) and Focused Psychological Strategies (FPS) training for GPs. The GPMHSC strives to ensure optimal mental health for people in Australia through ensuring high quality GP education and training in mental health. The GPMHSC requires the involvement of people with anxiety and depression, their friends, family and carers in the education of GPs in mental health.
