How to make a referral to a LifeConnect Psychologist

LifeConnect welcomes referrals from a wide variety of professionals, including Psychologists, Psychiatrists, General Practitioners, Community Nurses and other mental health care providers.  LifeConnect Psychologists are registered with the National Psychology Board of Australia, which allows their clients to benefit from the new Medicare Better Access to Psychologists Program.

To make a referral under the Medicare Better Access to Psychologists Program a Mental Health Care Plan (or Medicare item 2710) will be required.

We have attached an Assessment Referral Resource as recommended by leading psychology think thank, the Black Dog Institute. You can meet the referral requirements by filling out this mental healthcare plan.

LifeConnect is a private practice with highly qualified registered Psychologists.  All our services are billable.  Medicare’s Better Access to Psychologists Program offers some financial assistance to patients requiring treatment for specific diagnosable disorders.

Initial 30 minute discussion is FREE for clients who attend without a medical referral
