Mandatory Reporting

Seeking help can often instil fear into medical practitioners and bring about questions relating to mandatory reporting. Due to overwhelming concerns raised by junior doctors in relation to mental health and mandatory reporting it is hoped that this information will provide some clarity and reinforce that its ok to seek help. 

Dr Gannon (AMA President) has said directly "It is clear that all the Health Ministers are committed to removing barriers from doctors seeking help from other doctors about their mental health or stress-related conditions".

Legislation is currently being developed in consultation with the States and Territories and medical professionals with a clear message that "the barriers to doctors accessing mental health are going to be removed."

In Australia, as outlined by AHPRA and the  Medical Board of Australia the threshold for mandatory reporting is actually higher than most people think. The information in these links aims to reassure doctors who might be considering seeking help.
