Dr Emilie Staehr

General Practitioner, Development Manager, Program Manager

Dr Staehr is a specialist General Practitioner providing mental health specific services to May Medical.

Dr Emilie Staehr is an Adelaide girl from birth, graduating from Adelaide University. She trained in Adelaide and has had placements from Victor Harbor to Port Pirie to Kangaroo Island. She became a Fellow of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (FRACGP) in 2012.

Dr Staehr is a specialist General Practitioner providing mental health specific services to May Medical.

She is appreciative of the fact that we need the constants in life so we can purposefully take time to notice when things differ. It is one of the guiding principles behind the creation of the space at May.

Dr Staehr believes May’s breadth of service yet individualised approach to each and every patient is one of its greatest strengths in helping people deal with issues, no matter how big or small. She hopes patients will find a new and better constancy from their contact with May and she particularly looks forward to guiding people into the service with May Medical.

Dr Staehr is the Development Manager of May Medical and is the Program Manager and Clinical Lead for the ADHD Group Programs at May, fondly known as 'MAYdhd', developed in 2023. Her aim for the division and the programs alike is to help individuals understand what is really going on underneath one’s brain, without judgement and without shame.

Dr Staehr also works in general practice, particularly in the area of women’s health, and as a surgical assistant. She has previously been a clinical lecturer at Adelaide University and an examiner for the RACGP.

Away from May, Dr Staehr is amazed on a daily basis by her three girls and considers them and her husband such a gift. Emilie looks forward to resuming more sport when life settles down, having previously enjoyed tennis and hockey. She loves nothing more than time spent with family and friends and, as a keen musician, getting along to many and varied kinds of stage performances.
