Mental health training for GPs

Following on from a catastrophic bushfire season in 2019/20 the Black Dog Institute is launching a scheme to train GPs to recognise any Emergency Service Workers (ESW) and their families in need of mental health support.

Once trained, GPs will be able to tailor appropriate local support and referrals to specialist mental health care.

Training will be delivered online and is open to GPs around Australia.

GP's can complete an Expression of Interest to undertake the training.
