Our doctors recognise that 1 in 5 Australians will suffer from a mental illness and more will suffer a life crisis requiring intervention at some stage. Bannockburn Surgery doctors are skilled at creating a mental health plan so patients can be referred to an appropriate psychologist.
If you are in mental health crisis, such as having thoughts of self harm or suicide it is important to get help right now. Within our opening hours you are welcome to call the practice and ask to speak to our nurse, who can arrange a doctor to see you immediately. Other options include:
