Under the new Aged Care Access Initiative, experienced psychologists are able to visit low care residents in Aged Care Facilities and respond more comprehensively to their mental health and/ or psycho-social health needs.
Consultation with facility staff about mental health care for particular patients is also being provided. Groups can be run to address commonly arising issues. It is not possible to provide these services to high care residents.
Referrals are accepted directly from GPs or via the Aged Care Facility.
