Summers Avenue Family Medical Practice places a strong emphasis on the mental wellbeing of our patients as 2 in 5 Australians aged 16-85 have experienced a mental disorder at some stage of their lives. We believe in creating an approachable, accessible and safe environment for all patients to discuss the concerns or challenges they are facing. This level of close engagement should be available at any stage of life.
Our doctors are dedicated to being a core member of your multidisciplinary team in mental health management, working alongside psychologists and psychiatrists to provide comprehensive and personalised care. More than a health service, we see our role as being part of your support community, helping you achieve your best.
We offer long 30 minute consultations as standard in regards to mental health. A long appointment provides adequate time for thorough assessment of mental health issues which are inherently complex and deeply personal. Through this detailed yet empathetic approach, our doctors will strive to listen to your story, understand your concerns and support your journey.
