Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act as we cope with life. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices.

Some types of mental health include:
  • Anxiety disorders, including panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and phobias 

  • Depression, bipolar disorder, and other mood disorders 

  • Eating disorders 

  • Personality disorders

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder 

  • Psychotic disorders, including schizophrenia

Our doctors are committed to treat mental health patients in a holistic manner. Sometimes medication can help and other times specialist counselling works as well or better. Your doctor may offer you a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan, this will make it more affordable to see a psychologist.

For Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people, events in the past can also affect social and emotional wellbeing. These include loss of lands, the impact of the Stolen Generations, separation from culture and identity and general level of disadvantage experienced by some Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Health Assessment is available to:
a)     Children between ages of 0 and 14 years 
b)     Adults between the ages of 15 and 54 years
