Mental health and wellbeing have been deeply and negatively impacted by recent events including the COVID-19 pandemic and bushfires.
In the budget announced last night, the Federal Government recognised the emotional impact of these events on all Australians and acknowledged the important work and support that psychologists provide.
It is very pleasing that people can now access 20 Medicare rebated psychology sessions for the next two years. This DOUBLES the sessions that people can currently access. Psychologists have lobbied for this change for many years.
I look forward to sharing the news with my patients and welcoming new ones to the practice.
Reach out for support.
