Mental Health Care Plan

A Mental Health Care Plan (also known as Mental Health Treatment Plan) is to support someone going through mental health issues. The plan is written by a GP, after a discussion about what your goals are; and following this, support is available (with a Medicare rebate) with a psychologist, to support you in your mental health and wellness.

Generally there are some out-of-pocket costs (on top of what Medicare provides). A mental health treatment plan lets you claim up to 20 sessions with a mental health professional each calendar year.
