Bushfire Support: Telehealth

The Federal Government has introduced new mental health measures to ensure that people have access to the coordinated and tailored support they need to recover from the effects of 2019-2020 bushfires.

As part of these measures, bushfire affected individuals, families and emergency response personnel who cannot easily access mental health professionals in person, will be able to obtain counselling and support through video telehealth services, with Medicare rebates.

Black Swan Health’s Telehealth Support Service is fully bulk billed. Our facilities are equipped with the latest technology to provide phone and video consultations nation-wide. Our team of highly experienced psychologists are available for appointments to provide bulk-billed mental health support to those affected by bushfires.

Our clinicians provide the most appropriate and effective evidence-based counselling strategies which can address the following:

  • Trauma
  • Stress management
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Depression
  • Grief and bereavement
  • Sleep disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Addiction
  • Child mental health

We are committed to improving access to evidence-based mental health services for individuals, families and communities, including emergency service personnel in bushfire affected areas across Australia.

To access this no-cost service, you do not need to have a diagnosed mental health condition, GP referral or mental health treatment plan. Simply register your information below, and our team of psychologists will contact you to confirm your appointment.
