Mental Health Care Plans (MHCP)

We here at Mens Toolbox strive to help all men (no matter what your financial position).

In Australia Medicare card holders can; after consultation with their GP; access a Medicare funded Mental Health Care Plan that can help with the cost of psychological intervention.

Please note, we are not a crisis support service. If your matter requires crisis support, please contact Lifeline Australia - 13 11 14 - Crisis Support. Suicide Prevention. If life is in danger, call 000 immediately.

  • What is a Mental Health Care Plan?
    • A mental health care plan is for individuals experiencing symptoms of mental illness.
    • A mental health care plan is organised through your preferred General Practitioner.
    • A mental health care plan will provide 10 Medicare rebated sessions with a registered psychologist over a 12-month period. 
    • This means you can claim some of the costs of your sessions, making your sessions with us more affordable.
  • Who is eligible for a Mental Health Care plan?
    • All Australian residents/citizens who hold a current Medicare card.
    • You are only eligible for one mental health care plan per 12 months.
  • Why do I need a Mental Health Care Plan?
    • In order to access Medicare rebates, you are required to obtain the Mental Health Care plan from your preferred GP.

    3 Simple Steps
    1. After your initial consult with us here at Mens Toolbox, we can provide you with a letter for your GP requesting a MHCP for you OR, you can request the plan directly from your local GP.
    2. Make a double appointment with your GP to allow time for them to write your plan. Give the letter of request to your GP & they will understand why you are there.
    3. Your GP will send your referral to us and we can commence appointments using your MHCP.
