Mental Health Treatment Plans:
This is a care plan written together with your Doctor during an appointment at your medical clinic. Your Doctor then sends this plan to us. We accept these treatment plans and we ALWAYS encourage you to get checked out with a Doctor if you are experiencing physical or mental health symptoms. BUT these treatment plans are not required in the first instance to access headspace Berri. Often we help young people to access a low-cost Doctor if you don't have one, and we will help you apply for a Medicare Card, if you don't have one.
Please note that if you access your Doctor for a Mental Health Treatment Plan, you should check with your clinic about costs/fees you will incur. You'll also need a Medicare Card.
You can find more details about referrals below in the 'more information section'.
