Scott Morrison, save time and money by adding Counsellors to the Medicare Rebate Schedule. We are available and ready to.

The Victorian Mental Health Minister recently announced $59.7 million Funding to ease the pressure of first responders. Of this a mere $250,000 was allocated to counselling for nurses, midwives and personal care workers at the coal face.

This follows a federal package giving people in COVID hit areas an additional 10 Medicare subsidised therapy sessions. 

Beyond Blue is now calling for a Nation Wide roll out of FREE ‘Mental Health Coaches’ to help Aussies cope with the increasing challenges. 

So, my question is this, why roll out a program of training and delivering FREE Mental Health Coaches when we already have thousands of Counsellors and Psychotherapists ready to go. 

We need Mental Health Support on the ground NOW!! Employ Counsellors & Psychotherapist set up and ready to go now!!  

Counsellors registered with PACFA or ACA who cannot currently access the Medicare Rebates for clients because they are not included in the current Schedule. 

Counsellors and Psychotherapists who are registered with these National Bodies and are also required to be accredited, have ongoing Supervision and Continuing Professional Development. 

So with everything else that’s going on at the moment, let get this done ✅
