Mental Health Treatment Plans
The GP Mental Health Treatment Plans are for patients with a mental disorder who would
benefit from a structured approach to the management of their treatment needs.
The treatment plan involves a discussion between your doctor and you regarding the
mental health assessment and treatment services that would assist you with the mental
health issues being faced by you.
After consultation, your doctor might refer you to a

  • Psychologist
  • Psychiatrist

for further management of your disorder.
Medicare benefits are available for up to ten (10) mental health services per eligible
patient, per calendar year, to help with the cost of attending these health professionals.
