If you or someone you know has been directly affected by the recent bushfires there are a range of mental health services available to support you.
Your GP can assist in assessing your mental health support needs, and if you may benefit from a ‘Mental Health Care Plan’. A Mental Health Care Plan entitles you to access Medicare rebated support for mental health concerns for up to 10 individual sessions within a calendar year. With your Mental Health Care Plan, your GP can support you in finding the right registered allied health professionals such as Social Workers, Psychologists and Occupational Therapists for your mental health support needs.
Please check with your referred allied health professional to determine if you may have any gap fees.
