|Abstract: ||There are many unanswered research questions
regarding mental health in the general practice setting. These need to be adequately researched to inform policy and reform. Developments in services should not be stalled by the fact that there are still many unanswered questions. There are plenty of opportunities for true innovation in the primary care metal health arena.
The general practice workforce has an important role in managing these disorders but cannot do it alone.
Further development though Divisions needs to
be done in a measured way and needs to engage
Divisions and their members and meet their
agendas firstly. The development of three way
partnerships between consumers, GPs and
specialist services is essential to future success.|
