A guide for training providers


This guide has been developed for training providers who are interested in developing accredited mental health training and education activities for general practitioners (GPs). This document may also be useful for regional training providers (RTPs) who are interested in developing and integrating GPMHSC-accredited mental health activities as part of general practice registrar training.

It sets out:

  • the specific training that GPs are required to complete in order to access GP mental healthcare MBS item numbers under the Better Access initiative
  • the content requirements for GPMHSC accredited training
  • how to apply for accreditation of activities you develop
  • details of ongoing mental health education and training recommended for GPs.
