Managing work-related mental health conditions in family medicine

    Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

    Abstract

    KEY POINTS
    • Many people face mental health problems or illness during their
    working years; some mental health conditions may be work
    related and lead to submission of a worker’s compensation claim.
    • Diagnosing and managing a work-related mental health
    condition is often not straightforward.
    • A new Australian evidence-based guideline aims to support
    family physicians who treat patients with work-related mental
    health conditions such as depression, anxiety, posttraumatic
    stress disorder and substance use disorder.
