Mental health conditions and care

 

Most of us will be affected emotionally at some stage of our lives; sometimes this is too hard to manage on our own. We can help you manage any mental health condition, either at the practice or through our referral network.

Speaking to your doctor is a good place to start if you are not coping. Most mental health conditions are very treatable and the earlier you seek support, the better.

If eligible, you are covered under Medicare for a mental health care plan. A mental health care plan identifies the exact type of health care you need and spells out what you and your doctor have agreed you are aiming to achieve. This allows Medicare rebates for up to 10 visits with a psychologist per year.

Please make sure you book a double appointment for these consultations.
