There are a number of support services and centres for information available in the community to assist individuals with psychological difficulties. While we are a private billing clinic and do not provide crisis assessment and support, we are aware that mental health issues can require immediate attention in the form of information about different psychological problems and crisis counselling and support. We are also aware that for some individuals, cost is a barrier to accessing the mental health treatment they require. We hope the links below can be of assistance in obtaining more information about particular mental health problems, and accessing crisis counselling and low fee services.
