The team at Gosnells Medical Clinic are able to assist with mental health issues. This can range from counselling after a stressful life event or crisis to utilising Medicare’s Mental Health Care Plans for those with an assessed mental health condition who may benefit from a structured approach to the management and treatment of their condition.
Your doctor will advise you whether a treatment plan is suitable for your case or may refer you to another mental health professional for further management.
Please note that due to the complexity of mental health issues, a longer appointment is usually required and you may be charged for the consult if you don’t have a Medicare card. This is due to the importance of your doctor taking an individualised approach, taking the time to discuss and identify the issue and develop a management plan that is suited to you.
To book an appointment, please phone reception on 9490 3330 and advise that you will need a longer consultation.
