All our GP’s are trained in mental health and we are here to help. Often, a mental health consultation or counselling consultation can take longer than 15 minutes, so please ask reception to book a longer appointment.
If you have a diagnosable mental health condition, you may qualify for a Mental Health Treatment Plan. If you have a Plan, Medicare will rebate part of the cost of seeing a private psychologist for up to 10 visits in a calendar year. Your GP can let you know whether you qualify for a Plan.
