Mental Health

Based on statistics, near 7.3 million (45 per cent) of Australians aged 16 to 85 will experience a common mental health disorder (such as depression, anxiety or a substance use disorder) in their lifetime. At Delta Family Doctors, we can assess patients with mental health issues and if needed, we can provide them with medications and/or “mental health care plans” which assist them in obtaining rebateable or free visits to see psychologists.

To be eligible, patients must have been suffering from a mental illness for over six months or will be likely to suffer for a further six months. To see if you are eligible or discuss your condition with one of doctors please contact us.
