Mental Health

People with mental health illness are half as likely to seek treatment, compared to those with physical illnesses. Seeing a GP and discussing how you are feeling is a great first step to getting the treatment you need. Our GP’s can diagnose and, if necessary, prescribe medication or refer you on to a psychologist.

Your GP may create a Mental Health Plan with you, which can entitle you to a Medicare rebate for up to 10 psychologist sessions per year.
