What is a Mental Health Care Plan?
In Australia, a Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP) is a structured plan that outlines the treatment and support a person with mental health issues can receive. Your mental health treatment plan will be developed and agreed to by you in collaboration with your doctor and will include the goals, treatment options and support services available. The MHTP is part of the Australian government’s mental health initiative, which aims to provide accessible and effective mental health care to individuals. Individuals with a valid Medicare card, who receive a MHTP from their Doctor, can claim up to 10 individual and 10 group sessions per year with a qualified mental health professional, like a psychologist. Initially your doctor will refer you for up to 6 sessions at a time. If you need more, they can refer you for further sessions. You can book an assessment for a Mental Health Treatment Plan online; this is a bulk bill service for Medicare card holders.
