Expert advice on GP consultations with young people experiencing mental health issues

One in three consultations with teenagers includes a mental health problem.

In this 20 minute video, practising psychiatrist and GP trainer, Dr Maryanne Freer, helps GPs:

  • decide, in the first consultation, whether or not a young person has a mental health problem

  • provide some immediate help to young people and their families whist they are waiting to be seen by a specialist

  • offer some simple and immediate options, including practical self help based on CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy)
