Mental Health Programme


Dr Brian Osborne

The Mental Health Programme provides clinical advice and support in the development of educational initiatives in primary care and contributes advice from a GP perspective into national policy and programme developments.

There are around 3,000 GPs in Ireland who manage approximately 25m consultations annually. About one fifth directly relate to a mental health symptom.
As trained specialists in mental health, knowing patients over time, GPs are experts at listening, counselling, diagnosing, risk assessing, and managing mental health.
