Clinical Mental Health
Skylight’s Clinical Mental Health Service offers focussed psychological strategies under the Medicare Better Access Scheme.
Our friendly Accredited Mental Health Clinicians have extensive postgraduate training and experience in the field of mental health.
Medicare Better Access Services are offered by suitably qualified staff. E.g an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker, Registered Psychologist or Occupational Therapist.
What can I get support with?
A Mental Health Clinician can help you manage challenges that impact day to day life.
For example when you:
- Persistently experience low mood or anxiety
- Experience family, friend or workplace conflict
- Feel socially isolated
- Are diagnosed with or suspect you may have a mental health condition
- Would like to achieve post traumatic growth
How does it work?
Our Mental Health Clinicians will assess your situation and together will plan how Skylight can support you with what you want to achieve. We offer a variety of evidence based approaches – please talk to our staff who can give you more information if you need.
