28 November 2021: Psychological Support Services (PSS) Although most people have an idea that there is some support offered through the Medicare system to pay part of a Medicare psychological service, many people are not aware of an additional scheme that operates parallel to this system – the PSS.
Psychological Support Services (PSS) provides free short term face to face, or via telehealth, psychological therapy for people experiencing mild to moderate mental health concerns that live in the Central and Eastern Sydney Primary Health Network and are experiencing financial hardship and who may not be able to access support through Medicare subsidised psychological services. To access this service discuss with your GP (please note not all doctors are familiar with the scheme) please give them the details available by clicking here.
