The General Practice Mental Health Standards Collaboration (GPMHSC) have published revised versions of the GP Mental Health Treatment Plans (MHTPs) templates.
The GP MHTP templates can enhance the quality of mental healthcare provision and support GPs in the management of common mental health illnesses under the Better Access to Psychiatrists, Psychologists and General Practitioners through the MBS (Better Access) initiative.
The updated templates are based on the latest available evidence for best practice mental health assessment and treatment planning in general practice. This includes assessment for trauma-informed care and practice and a recovery-orientated approach to help define patient goals.
Visit the GPMHSC website for more information on the revised changes and to download the revised templates.
