Mental Health

Most of us experience mental health challenges throughout our lives – some occasionally, others more often. These can occur at any stage in life, from early childhood through to adulthood.

Many look to their GP to start the healing process. Whether it’s simply to talk with someone you can trust, discuss medication or get a specialist referral, we’re here for you.

We can also assess your eligibility for a Mental Health Care Plan.  Your doctor will assess whether you have a mental health disorder, ask you a few questions, fill in the plan and then  set goals together. When you make the booking, be sure to ask if a long appointment of 20 minutes or more is needed. This plan entitles you to rebates for up to 10 psychology sessions a year, and up to 10 group Allied Health sessions a year, i.e.  Medicare helps with some of the costs of appointments with mental health professionals

Some of the conditions that we treat and services that we provide include:

* Some mental health problems, such as manic depression and schizophrenia, require specialist care. Your doctor will be able to refer you to an appropriate specialist that is right for you.
