Mental Health Care Plans
A GP Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) is a plan generated for you by your doctor, for the ongoing management of a mental health condition that interferes with cognitive, emotional or social abilities.
Your doctor will work together with you to assess your mental health, work out what help you require, set goals and choose treatment that best suits you.
What are the benefits for having a MHCP?
It can help you to set and achieve goals and monitor your progress. A MHCP helps deliver a holistic service with all members of the health care team (i.e. psychiatrists & psychologists) working to provide quality care.
Patients who are treated under a MHCP are eligible for up to 10 subsidised individual sessions per calendar year with an allied health professional who is registered with Medicare.
