A Mental Health Plan is special referral provided by your GP or psychiatrist to a psychologist for the provision of counselling to treat specified mental health conditions. Only the listed conditions are eligible. A mental health plan can only be made out to an individual, not a couple, nor a family.
Once you have a Mental Health Plan from your GP, you may be eligible for certain rebates on your counselling sessions. We’re happy to answer your questions about Mental Health Plans, so give us a call on 1800 877 924.
