AbstractKey Messages: 1. About one quarter of primary care attenders have high risk of psychological distress. 2. Among psychologically distressed patients who seek help from health care professionals, half do so with general practitioners / family doctors. 3. Of patients who have experienced psychological distress, nearly 60% have been asked by their regular doctors about psychological problems. 4. Distressed patients treated by general practitioners / family doctors have a longer average consultation time when presenting with psychological problems. 5. Among distressed patients referred to psychiatrists / clinical psychologists, 91.5% follow the referral instruction.
