e-Mental health - A guide for GPs

Building e-mental health into the treatment plan
☰ Table of contents

While it is not a requirement that an e-mental health recommendation be documented in a GP Mental Health Treatment Plan, this can be a useful way to articulate the plan for the patient’s care. Such a document would include the plan for follow-up and alternative referral options in the event that e-mental health is not suitable or effective.

The General Practice Mental Health Standards Collaboration (GPMHSC) has developed a series of GP Mental Health Treatment Plan templates to support GPs in the management of patients with a mental health issue. These templates include prompts to consider e-mental health interventions and can be adapted to suit your needs and those of your patients and practice.
