Dr. Joanna Howe
Mental Health Care Plan
We work alongside other specialist mental health professionals to enable you to get the best treatment. Our doctors can prepare a specific review of your health needs and prepare a mental health care plan which can help you access medicare benefits for other treatments (e.g. Psychologist and Psychiatric consultations).
If you think that you may have a mental health condition, please book a long appointment with one of our caring doctors. You will also need to book a double appointment if you require a Mental Health Care Plan.
