Mental Health

Many of us will experience stress, anxiety and depression at some point in our lives. Our GP’s can provide support, time and space for you to talk about what’s happening and figure out a treatment plan, including Mental Health Care Plans to access psychological support if required. We can also help with more complex conditions and refer to a suitable mental health professional when necessary. 

A mental health care plan (MHCP) is a document that your GP writes with you about treating a mental health condition. It identifies what type of health care you will require and details what you and your doctor have agreed you are aiming to achieve. Your GP will fill it out with you during your consultation.

An MHCP allows you to claim up to 10 sessions each calendar year with a Medicare registered mental health professional. This means that your GP may refer you to see a psychologist, psychiatrist, social worker or occupational therapist for an initial 6 sessions, with the possibility of 4 more after a review.
