COVID-19: Obtaining a Referral for Mental Health

We’ve had a number of individuals enquiring how they can get a referral to see a Psychologist in light of the restrictions with COVID-19. I can confirm that a Mental Health Care Plan &/or a new referral letter can be provided by a GP via Telehealth. This of course will be dependent on whether the medical practice is able to offer Telehealth/phone appointments and the individual processes of each medical practice.

However, the general consensus is ‘yes’ it can be done. Check out the video I’ve put together explaining the process. As always, please let me know if you have any questions 🌻
