Perkins, David; Williams, Anna; McDonald, Julie; Larsen, Karen; Powell Davies, Gawaine; Lester, Helen; Harris, Mark


Mental health disorders are the leading cause of the disability burden in Australia. Only 40% of people with a mental disorder report receiving treatment. General practitioners (GPs) and generalist providers are essential service providers for this population. This review examines the role of generalists in Australian mental health care, the elements of care they can provide effectively, the supports they need, and the implications for workforce arrangements and policy
