GPs referring under a GP Mental Health Care Plan

GPs can refer clients to with a range of diagnoses (see below) under a GP Mental Health Care Plan. GPs are welcome to contact Dr. Walsh with any questions or concerns.

Upon receiving a referral with a Mental Health Care Plan from a GP:

  • The client can contact Dr Walsh and arrange an initial appointment.
  • At the conclusion of the first 6 sessions, Dr Walsh send a report to the GP updating them on the treatment progress and making recommendations for ongoing management.

In the event the client requires continued treatment, as noted in Dr. Walsh’s report, the GP can send a re-referral letter. Dr. Walsh will send the GP an updated report at the conclusion of therapy.
