How do I get a Mental Health Care Plan?
A MHCP is given by a GP and needs to be created before you attend a first session with a psychologist. It is a good idea to book a long appointment with your GP and request a MHCP be completed, following a discussion of the mental-health difficulties you are experiencing. Your GP will need to diagnose you with a mental health condition in order for you to eligible for a MHCP. They will ask you questions about how your situation and may also request you complete a short self-report survey, such as the K10 or DASS21. You will need to bring your MHCP (including the referral letter) to your appointment with Sarah.
Sarah will also review your symptoms and eligibility for clinical diagnosis (as is required by Medicare), after which your plan will be activated.
