HOW MUCH DOES HEADSPACE  COST?

Our services at headspace Osborne park are free.  Some services will require you to have a referral from a doctor. But don't worry; we can help with this as well. 

 

DO I NEED A MEDICARE CARD?

Some services, (like seeing a psychologist or doctor), might require you to have a medicare card. If you don't have one you can click here to go to the medicare website and easily apply for one. If you need some help just give us a call on 0892089555 and we will guide you through the process, step by step.   

 

WHAT IF I CAN'T GET A MEDICARE CARD?

If for some reason you can't apply for a medicare card we have many other headspace services (like general counselling) which don't require you to have one. Also, we work with other awesome organisations at our headspace Osborne park centre who don't require a medicare card to access their services. 

 

HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

Making an appointment is simple; just phone or email us to find a time that suits you. You can also ask a friend, parent, other family member, health worker or community agency to contact headspace for you. 

 

 

ACCESSING OUR SERVICE (Click to show below) (Click to hide below)

There are many ways to access our services at headspace Osborne Park. 

THROUGH A MENTAL HEALTH CARE TREATMENT PLAN. 

 If you are concerned about your mental health, you can speak to your General Practitioner (G.P.).  G.P.s are all medically trained doctors and helping people improve their mental and physical wellbeing is all part of a day's work for them - so there is no need to feel shy about asking for help!

Once you’re at your appointment, tell your GP about what you’re going through, and ask about a mental health treatment plan.  If you haven’t received a diagnosis for a mental illness before, your GP will need to assess whether you have a diagnosable mental illness -sometimes a GP will want longer than their usual appointment time to do this.

A Mental Health Treatment Plan is a tool used by doctors, counselors/therapists, and clients to shape the focus of mental health therapy. A mental health care plan helps therapists and clients make positive change happen through purpose, focus, and direction. A mental health care plan can only be issued by a Medical Doctor.  

A Mental Health Treatment Plan initially gives you six rebatable sessions  with a psychologist per calendar year. That means six sessions from January 1 - December 31.

Once you hit the six sessions though, you can ask for more if you and your headspace psychologist think you need them. Head back to your GP to review your mental health treatment plan.

If you have any questions at all about how to get a mental health care plan through your GP, call our friendly headspace Osborne park reception staff on 0892089555 for help. 

THROUGH A REFERRAL 

If you don't have a mental health care plan from your GP, you can still access our services through a general referral. We are happy to receive a referral from a whole range of people providing different services, like school chaplains, counselors or youth workers. 

IN PERSON

If you would like to attend our centre in person, you can pop in and see us during opening hours, Monday to Friday.  

ON THE PHONE

If you want to give us a call to organise an appointment for you or someone else, call us on  0892089555 and we will be happy to help!
