Mental Health Care Plan

A mental health care plan appointment is a comprehensive assessment of an individual’s mental well-being. It involves evaluating emotional health, mental health history, current stressors, and daily functioning. The process also includes understanding personal objectives. Based on these findings, a personalised mental health care plan is then created. It’s a collaborative process that prioritises preferences and needs.

What happens during a Mental Health Care Plan Appointment?

During the appointment, an extensive examination of the individual’s mental health is conducted.

  • The assessment begins by discussing your emotional well-being, exploring past mental health events, acknowledging current stressors and evaluating day-to-day activities.
  • Then, your personal goals are also taken into account.
  • The plan will be written up and sent to your preferred psychologist, and a copy given to you.
  • To abide by Medicare rules, Mental Health Care Plans can only be provided to eligible patients, and must be done face-to-face or via video consult, they cannot be done over the phone.

All these elements contribute to the development of a tailored mental health care plan that respects your preferences and prioritises specific needs, all designed to provide a roadmap to improved mental health.
