MENTAL HEALTH

MDAS clients have access to referrals to psychologist and psychiatrist services.

Psychological counselling is available for people aged from 16 years and for children by referral in Mildura, Swan Hill and Kerang.  

Psychologist services are available by external referral.

A psychiatrist is available to clients of the Mildura Social and Emotional Wellbeing Hub via Skype. A Mental Health Care Plan is required to be in place.

In addition to individual counselling sessions, counselling is available for couples and family groups who are:
  • Experiencing depression, anxiety, or stress
  • Having trouble coping with life challenges
  • Wanting to improve their overall emotional well-being
  • Drug and alcohol issues
  • Need someone to talk to who isn't family

Fees and Medicare 
There is no charge for an initial consultation.

In order to receive the Medicare rebate, you will need to visit your GP first.  This can be done through our MDAS Medical Clinic.

Once your GP has developed a Mental Health Care Plan with you, you are eligible for referral to psychological and psychiatric services.

Clients who are not eligible for a Mental Health Care Plan can still use the service by making an appointment with one of our Health Service Receptionists.
