Local Services

If the Student Counselling Service is unable to provide an appointment in a timely manner due to demand for appointments students will be referred to the following external agencies. If you require specialist or long term support our counsellors will also recommend an external agency to you or ask you to speak with your GP about a Mental Health Care Plan.

These agencies are not directly associated with the University. However the Student Counselling Service has a working relationship with these agencies and can help you make contact with them or communicate with them regarding your situation with your permission.

Mental Health Care Plans

If you need to access an external psychologist or psychiatrist you will be referred to your GP. You are encouraged to discuss with them your eligibility for a Medicare rebate through the Better Access to Psychiatrists, Psychologists and General Practitioners through the Medicare Benefits Schedule (Better Access) initiative. Better Access aims to improve outcomes for people with a clinically-diagnosed mental disorder through evidence-based treatment. Under this initiative, Medicare rebates are available to patients for selected mental health services provided by general practitioners (GPs), psychiatrists, psychologists (clinical and registered) and eligible social workers and occupational therapists. Please see the Department of Health website for more information about Better Access to mental health care.

If you do not have a regular GP you can contact the following local practices. You can also access crisis services at the following three hospitals.
