New primary mental health pathways

Murray PHN has commissioned a range of new primary mental health services to help GPs support underserviced and vulnerable populations in our region. For information on new referral options in your area, please click here.

Across the region, Murray HealthPathways provides localised clinical information, referral details and other resources free to GPs and other clinicians.

Our focus has been on completing important pathways for the more prevalent mental health and AOD conditions, with half of these now complete and the remainder to be finalised this year.

Dr Christie Rodda, Clinical Editor and GP at The Beechworth Surgery (pictured) said the new mental health pages, which were requested by general practice, provide clinical point-of-care information for the assessment, management and referral of patients.

"Clinicians can find acute, primary health, early intervention and preventative information and offer pathways for stepped care approaches such as; telehealth, community support, specialist care and self-management," Dr Rodda said.

Health professionals in our region can access Murray HealthPathways, with new mental health referral information (below) via this link.
