How does a Mental Health Treatment Plan work?
A Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) starts with an initial GP assessment. In this assessment, you have the time to discuss your symptoms, concerns, and goals for treatment with your doctor.
Your doctor will be central to coordinating your treatment plan based on your diagnosis, treatment options and goals. The plan may involve a combination of treatments and support networks.
If necessary, they may refer you to a mental health professional, such as a psychologist, psychiatrist, or counsellor. They may also prescribe medication, suggest lifestyle changes, and talk through appropriate self-help strategies.
If you have a valid Medicare card, you may be eligible for Medicare benefits which can help cover some costs associated with seeing a psychologist or other mental health professional. Consult with your providers and check with Medicare for the most up-to-date information.
Care plans are reviewed and adjusted regularly, to check your progress and modify treatment as needed.
You can book an assessment for a Mental Health Treatment Plan online. This is a bulk bill service for Medicare card holders.
