Partners in prevention : mental health and general practice : a scoping of mental health promotion, prevention and early intervention activities in the general practice setting / Anne O'Hanlon, Leanne Wells, Jennie Parham
Auseinet and the Australian Divisions of General Practice, under the auspices of the National Mental Health Promotion and Prevention Working Party, conducted a scoping study of mental health promotion, prevention and early intervention (PPEI) activities in the practice setting. A survey of the Divisions of General Practice and focus groups with general practitioners have identified that there is a base of mental health PPEI activity occurring in the general practice setting and enthusiasm for PPEI approaches to mental health. Some of the work is explicitly identified as mental heath PPEI, while much is integrated into more general mental health and shared care strategies. Recommendations include developing evidence based resources and education programs, and further developing partnerships and referral pathways
