Better Access to Mental Health Care


For individuals who are in a financial position to access private mental health professionals, services can be accessed via the Better Access to Mental Health Care Program.

GPs can refer directly to registered private clinicians for up to 10 individual sessions and 10 group sessions per calendar year via the GP Mental Health Treatment Plan (Item 2715). GPs can find more information about the Better Access Initiative here.

Information for consumers can be found at: Better Access to Mental Health
