GPs shouldn’t provide ongoing mental health support: RANZCP

A survey of 1000 adults by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) found people over 45 years are lagging behind younger generations when it comes to understanding mental illness.

This age group was twice as likely as 18- to 24-year-olds to rely on their GP over any other type of mental health professional or social support.
