Mental Health Care plans – Medicare rebateable

Just as our bodies sometimes require professional medical help with an injury or disease for it to get better, sometimes so do our minds. Ensuring the wellness of our mental health is just as important as ensuring our bodies remain healthy and active.

Mental health issues need not carry the stigma they once used to.  Our modern world, with real modern world problems and issues, can sometimes feel overwhelming and isolating.

Symptoms of mental health issues including depression and anxiety are very real and deserve the best care and treatment just like any other physical health issue.

You may not be aware that mental health issues can be treated under a Mental Health Care Plan which is Medicare rebateable.
