General Practice

A general practitioner (GP) is a doctor who is also qualified in general medical practice. GPs are often the first point of contact for someone, of any age, who feels sick or has a health concern. They treat a wide range of medical conditions and health issues.

Social Workers

Social workers support people to make change in their lives to improve their personal and social well-being. This happens by identifying issues that require change and connecting people with support such as secure housing or family therapy. Social workers have knowledge of human behaviour and development, life cycle stages, families and social networks, disability and health, including mental health.

Psychologist

Psychologists are educated in the science of how people feel, behave and react. They provide help with issues such as anxiety, depression, stress and eating disorders. Psychologists do not prescribe medications but use a number of scientifically-supported tests to determine the mental health and wellbeing of people. Psychologists can specialise in a number of areas including mental health disorders (clinical psychologists), jobs and careers (organisational psychologists) and sports and exercise (sports psychologists).
