A holistic approach to healthcare is important including physical, social, spiritual and mental health.
Mental healthcare may include but is not limited to medication management, regular counselling, referral to allied health providers as well as preparation and ongoing management of GP mental healthcare plans.
There is often a stigma around mental health that prevents people from seeking help, especially amongst men and adolescents.
We encourage anyone suffering from any form of mental health issues to seek help.
Mental Health Plans are available from all of our GP’s. Dr Victor Shawpan has completed extra training and has a special interest in mental health care.
We have "Psychology Now"-Prue Wright on site who accepts referrals from all GP's.
When you are under a Mental Health Plan, you qualify for Medicare rebateable
consultations with a psychologist (up to 10 visits per calendar year).
