Do you see children or adolescents with mental health problems? Do you have problems providing the care you think they need? Do you have thoughts about how to improve mental health care for kids?

If yes, Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI) would love you to take part in a National Health and Medical Research Council-funded study aimed at improving services provided for Australian children and adolescents with mental health conditions.

As part of this study MCRI are seeking ideas, advice, and suggestions from GPs (as well as paediatricians, child and adolescent psychiatrists and psychologists) across Victoria and South Australia. The aim is to identify practical ideas to remove barriers and improve access to care for Australian children with mental health disorders.

In a 30-45 minute phone interview, you will be asked about the barriers and enablers of mental health care for young people, and have a chance to offer ideas, advice and suggestions.

If you would be willing to take part in this novel project, please email YES to or call 9345 5965

Please feel free to email or call on 0438 420 116 if you have any questions about the project.
