The program was introduced in July 2001 in recognition of the important role of general practitioners in managing mental health problems and to enable team arrangements for referral of patients to allied health services.
The program has two components:
- Access to Allied Psychological Services (ATAPS) - enables GPs to refer consumers to allied health professionals who deliver focused psychological strategies.
- GP Psych Support - provides GPs with access to patient management advice from psychiatrists.
