Title
Suicide Risk
Abstract
Chronic mental health problems (depressive disorder, anxiety and schizophrenia) account for 9% of all chronic problems managed by General Practitioners (GPs). However, the prevalence of patients at risk of suicide is hard to quantify as GPs often document suicide ideation or suicide attempt as “depression”. A study conducted in the local Lake Macquarie area showed that GPs did not reliably predict patients with suicide ideation. In order to support GPs to manage patients at risk of suicide, the Hunter New England Local Health District (HNE LHD) Mental Health services and the Hunter Medicare Local (HML) Psychology Service agreed to be involved in developing a Suicide Risk HealthPathway.
