What is Mental Health?
According to the World Health Organization, mental health is defined as “a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.”
Everyone strives for good mental health, however, the stresses of life can often get to us which can link to mental health problems. These problems often require the assistance of a qualified professional. However, they are usually less severe than ‘mental illnesses’.
How a Psychologist Can Help You
Psychologists are experts in providing therapies for mental health problems and disorders. An experienced Psychologist with the right qualifications will be able to assess and understand your specific situation before providing the most effective treatment plan.
Medicare Rebates for Psychological Services
Medicare benefits are available for a range of specified psychological services. To be eligible to receive psychological services under Medicare, a person must be referred by his or her GP and in some instances by another medical specialist. Please speak to your GP to further assess your Medicare eligibility and enable a suitable clinical referral.
