Mental Health

Kimberley Medical Group doctors are experienced in providing advice and support relating to a wide range of mental health issues. We are able to complete GP Mental Health Care Plans and provide a counselling referral or referrals for other mental health services in Broome. We aim to provide a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment for patients to discuss their mental health concerns.

To make an initial appointment for mental health concerns, please contact reception and ask for a long appointment.

If you are concerned that you may be suffering from depression or anxiety, take the Beyond Blue Anxiety and Depression Checklist (K10).

Print your results and bring them with you so you can discuss these with your doctor at your appointment.
