Antidepressants, Benzos and Mental Health Care Plans with Dr Fildes

Family doctors (General Practitioners) can be the gate keepers to connect the community to the right mental health support. Hear directly from Dr. Chris Fildes - a family doctor for 37 years. We speak about depression and antidepressant medication, anxiety and benzodiazepines, and about the process of seeing a mental health practitioner. Dr. Fildes explains how government supported Mental Health Care plans work, how much they fund and what to expect out of the whole process of reaching out and speaking with a professional.
