This year, World Mental Health Day, an initiative of the World Federation for Mental Health, will be celebrated on Thursday 10th October 2019. It is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy.
Mental illness is very common. 1 in 5 (20%) Australians are affected by mental illness, yet many don’t seek help because of stigma.
Victoria Harbour Medical Centre is committed to ensuring all our patients take care of their physical, mental, emotional and social health, and to seek assistance when required.
Our GPs are here to support you through any challenging mental health issue or personal crisis, such as stress, grief, anxiety, depression and substance misuse. Regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation, our GPs respect your right to be heard, understood and cared for.
Please call (03) 9629 1414 to make an appointment with one of our highly trained GPs if you would like to have a chat about your mental health. Consultation fees apply.
For after-hours support call Beyond Blue on 1300 22 4636 or LifeLine on 13 11 14 and if you’re in immediate danger, call Emergency Services on 000.
