Anyone can refer to the Perth Voices Clinic. We encourage you - the voice hearer - to call to make your first appointment.
We are NDIS registered, and for clients with NDIS plans with psychology covered, we request that you use this funding to cover the cost of your appointments. You or your NDIS coordinator will need to provide us with a copy of your NDIS plan.
For clients who are not NDIS funded, we request that you receive a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP or psychiatrist with a referral to the Perth Voices Clinic (clinical psychology) prior to your first appointment.
Our therapies have been designed to be 10 sessions in length and shown to be effective. We unfortunately are not able to offer longer-term therapy as we are small but busy clinic and need to be able to offer a service to everyone and keep our wait lists manageable.
If you do not have NDIS and have already used your psychology sessions covered by Medicare for the financial year, then you should still bring a GP referral letter to your first appointment (but a Mental Health Care Plan will not be required, as you will be allocated to a provisional psychologist).
The clinic is not set up to provide crisis or medical management. If you are in mental health or situation crisis, or at risk of hurting yourself or others, you will be redirected to local mental health services, but can be re-referred to the Perth Voices Clinic at a later time.
* FROM NOVEMBER TO FEBRUARY WE EXPERIENCE HIGHER REFERRAL RATES AND THUS OUR WAIT LISTS ARE LONGER. WE APOLOGISE FOR THIS AND ENCOURAGE YOU TO DISCUSS OTHER OPTIONS WITH YOUR GP IF YOU NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE SOONER. *
