Health professionals

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.

beyondblue 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 depressionanxiety and suicidal behaviour in their patients.

Pioneering beyondblue-funded research can be accessed for free and we have also compiled helpful contacts and websites for health professionals.
