When you or one of your family members is experiencing a mental health issue, often the first point of call is the local general practitioner. Kangaroo Point GP’s are a good place to start, placed to undertake a holistic assessment looking at the mental
and physical sides of your clinical presentation. For example, they might notice some physical illness or medication that is affecting your mental health. Or perhaps they may want to do a blood test or other investigations; this might be,
for example, to detect a thyroid problem or a low blood count that could be contributing to your symptoms.
GPs also have a broad perspective when it comes to the local mental health services on offer. They know which mental
health professionals are available and can refer you to someone suited to you.
