Mental Health GP Shared Care

Studies have shown that a holistic approach to patient care, including strong collaboration between GPs and mental health services, leads to improved patient outcomes.

The Mental Health GP Shared Care resources are a directory of mental health service details, and  information to better support GPs in the shared care of mental health patients.

Resources include guidelines and templates to help you establish a shared care arrangement to exchange clinical information and support shared decision making for your patient.

You will also find:

  • catchment boundaries to help you locate the right mental health team for your patient
  • contact details for clinical assistance and specialist advice
  • information and resources to complete physical and metabolic health assessments for mental health service patients
  • referral forms and details.
