Anxiety, depression, bipolar and other mental health conditions impact millions of Australians each year; unfortunately there’s still a stigma attached to talking about these issues publicly.
The professionals at Kangaroo Point Medical Centre understand the sensitivities around these topics and offer the following services:
A mental health plan is a plan that your doctor writes for you to help you deal with and manage your mental health condition. This plan will help you gain access to psychologists and other allied-health professionals who can ultimately help you manage your mental health.
When you write a Mental Health Plan with your GP, you’re taking a snapshot of your mental state at a point in time, and this can be used to refer to medical health professionals like psychologists, counselors, psychiatrists, occupational therapists etc.
You’re entitled to a Medicare rebate of up to 10 consultations with a mental health professional, including Psychologists, Social Workers or Occupational Therapists, once the Mental Health Plan has been completed.
