Mental health services
The team at Fountain Street General Practice are able to assist with mental health issues. This can range from counselling after a stressful life event or crisis to utilising Medicare's Mental Health Care Plans for those with an assessed mental health condition who may benefit from a structured approach to the management and treatment of their condition.
Your doctor will advise you whether a treatment plan is suitable for your case or may refer you to another mental health professional for further management.
Please note that due to the complexity of mental health issues, a longer appointment is usually required and you may be charged more than the standard scheduled fee. This is due to the importance of your doctor taking an individualised approach, taking the time to discuss and identify the issue and develop a management plan that is suited to you.
To book an appointment, please phone reception on 8303 2900 and advise that you will need a longer consultation.
