Primary health care is the first point of call for most people living in Australia with a health concern, and it is the point in the system where most care is delivered.
Beyond Blue works with primary care health providers such as General Practitioners (GPs), nurses and other allied health professionals, to support the identification, treatment and management of depression, anxiety and suicidal behaviour in their patients.
Pioneering Beyond Blue-funded research can be accessed for free and we have also compiled helpful contacts and websites for health professionals.
Resources for health professionals
To enable a positive health outcome for people experiencing depression, anxiety and at risk of suicide Beyond Blue provides a range of free resources and training based on high quality research and clinical advice from leading experts for health professionals working in perinatal, youth, LGBTI and aged care mental health.
Doctors' mental health
Health professionals can experience depression and anxiety too. Beyond Blue's Doctors' Mental Health Program aims to address the prevalence of depression and anxiety in Australian medical students and doctors.
If you believe that you may have depression or anxiety it is important that you seek professional advice.
