Dr Nick De Felice introduces the Virtual Psych Centre.

Transcript

Hi, I’m Nick De Felice, Consultant Psychiatrist and Medical Director of the Virtual Psych Centre. I have over 20 years of psychiatric experience and I work with a number of leading psychiatrists from around Australia to ensure the information on the Virtual Psych Centre is up to date and more importantly is practical, useful and relevant to both treating medical professionals and patients suffering from mental illness.

A quarter of all Australians will experience a mental illness at some point in their life. 80% of patients with chronic medical conditions are likely to experience a mood change and 25% will experience a depressive illness. With our increasingly busy lifestyle, anxiety and stress are prevalent in our society and psychiatric disorders can arise in such circumstances.

Psychiatric conditions occur in all races, regardless of gender, age or socioeconomic status. Depression is a common condition and this is a great educational site on how to deal with this common and sensitive condition. That is why information on the Virtual Psych Centre is important for holistic patient care across all disease areas, especially chronic conditions.

Membership to the Virtual Medical Centre is free and if you’re a medical professional you can get access to the higher level of professional doctor only information by supplying either your provider or prescriber number during the sign up process. Members receive breaking news alerts, regular informative newsletters, and medical professionals can request free posters and brochures for their waiting rooms.

Just click on the Join Now button on the site and become a member of the Virtual Medical Centre and be part of a group of professionals and health consumers accessing the latest medical information.

Thanks for your time and have a great day.
