We all understand how important it is to be heard and to be held in times of need. There isn’t anything worse than leaving an appointment and wondering what happened and being upset because nobody actually listened to you.
The RACGP (Royal Australian College of General Practitioners) found that 62% of patients are presenting with mental health problems to their doctor. If these numbers continue it will place clinical depression as one of the most disabling conditions by 2020 only second to heart disease.
At Next Practice - GenBiome we understand that a 10 minute consultation with your doctor usually isn’t enough, and that mental health symptoms are frequently related to both physiology as well as psychology. We take mental health concerns seriously and aim to help you work it out at all levels.
