Health professionals

Primary health care is the first point of call for most Australians with a health issue, 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 depression and anxiety in their patients.

One of beyondblue's key goals is to help health professionals work better with people with depression and anxiety. Many of the programs we have been involved in have a focus on educating and supporting health professionals.

Health professionals can experience depression and anxiety too. beyondblue's Doctors' Mental Health Program aims to address the prevalence of depression and anxiety in Australian medical students and doctors.
