How it Works

Clients currently seeing a psychologist at Mind Health Care have access to a psychiatric review with a Mind Health Care psychiatrist (subject to availability).  A psychiatric review is a one off assessment in which your GP (and your psychologist, if you consent) receive a detailed assessment summary and a 12 month treatment plan.

A psychiatric review can be helpful for those who are seeking clarification about their mental health diagnosis and for those who are looking to have their medications assessed by an expert in mental health medications.

In order to organise a psychiatric review at Mind Health Care you will need to submit a referral from your GP requesting this service.

Cancellation & Non-attendance Policy

Mind Health Care is a private business and we do not get paid by Medicare or any other agency when clients do not attend appointments. If you book an appointment you are responsible for payment in the event that you do not attend or do not provide 24 hours notice of cancellation. We have a phone answering service for clients to provide notice of cancellations outside reception hours. Our fee is $120 unless a minimum 24 hours notice is provided when cancelling an appointment. This fee will be charged to your credit /debit card at the time of your scheduled appointment. Our cancellation policy is strictly applied and we do not waiver cancellation fees. Our policy is in accordance with the recommended cancellation policy of the Australian Psychological Society.
