GPs with special interests in mental health

MPHN recently met with the Consortium responsible for delivering the GPs with Special Interests in Mental Health Initiative.

The Consortium (funded by MPHN) is focused on developing a competency based framework for training and capacity development amongst GPs to ensure a competent and confident workforce, equipped to support optimal outcomes among patients presenting with mental health issues.
