Three PhD candidates presented three ways that mental health research is shaping the future of primary care in a symposium at the Society for Mental Health Research Conference on Wednesday 27th November, 2019. The symposium, chaired by A/Prof Victoria Palmer, focused on the importance of patient-centred approaches to mental health research that provide tailored and targeted approaches for improved mental-physical clinical care.
- the compound problem of antidepressant overprescribing and the lack of supports available to address it,

- the impact of motivational interviewing on collaborative care for mental-physical multimorbidity.
Symposium attendees were invited to share questions or comments using an interactive question-and-answer platform.
