Referral Process

GP Referral

You may choose to visit your GP for a referral to Bright Mind Psychology. You will be given a
GP Mental Health Treatment Plan
(Formerly GP Management Plan)
Under this plan, up to 10 psychology rebates are available to you per calendar year. After the 6th session, your psychologist will advise you to return to your GP for a re-referral, who will discuss with you about your progress and access to the further 4 rebates for the year. In this process, your psychologist will be writing to update your GP with brief summaries on your attendance and your subsequent progress in treatment.
Unfortunately, our TAC, WorkCover and
VOCAT spots are currently fully (1st August 2020)
