GP Psychiatry Support Line: new webinar

16 November 2020

Have you heard of the GP Psychiatry Support Line? It’s a free service exclusively for GPs who require psychiatry advice, on the phone or via secure messaging. It helps you manage the care of mental health consumers without needing to refer or triage them. Staffed by psychiatrists, the Psychiatry Support Line was established in July 2018 in response to GPs indicating they would like timely access to psychiatry expertise. 

Watch this short video for an overview of how the service operates.

The Psychiatrists screen regular webinars on topics GPs have requested. Participation in each webinar takes a maximum of 60 minutes, and earns 2 CPD points (Category 2). The latest webinar, Addiction and Substance Use Disorder, is now available here.

GPs can call 1800 16 17 18 between 9.00 am and 5.00 pm, Monday to Friday.
