If you, or a friend, require emergency assistance for a mental health issue you should present to your local Emergency Department or call 000 for an ambulance.
If it is not an emergency situation you can visit your GP who can make referrals to a psychologist, if deemed appropriate. If you have a Medicare card you may be able to receive a rebate for the cost of up to 10 counselling sessions when referred by a GP.
