When seeking help for depression or other mental health concerns, the first point of call is to talk to a General Practitioner (GP). Discussing mental health challenges can be difficult so it is important to find the right doctor that a person feels comfortable talking to. Mental health friendly GPs have skill and knowledge in mental health and help support their patients on the road to recovery.
