My friend obtained a referral to a Clinical Psychologist from their GP under the Better Access to Mental Health Care Plan. What is the Better Access to Mental Health?
The Better Access to Mental Health initiative aims to improve outcomes for people with a mental health concern through evidenced based treatment. People that receive a referral initially receive six individual sessions and/or six group sessions. An additional four sessions may be obtained after a review with your GP, Psychiatrist or Paediatrician. That is, you may be eligible for ten individual and ten group psychological sessions per calendar year.
