Accessing community mental health services

We provide free or low-cost specialised, community-based mental health treatment and support for people aged 16 and older.

During the 2019/20 financial year, St John of God Mental Wellbeing Services supported 1,142 clients, with their emotional wellbeing over 9,127 sessions.

Treatment and services available

  • Individual counselling – one-on-one meetings with a clinician from our multi-disciplinary team for specialised support. Currently delivered via telephone to support social distancing. 
  • Group therapy – an opportunity to connect with other people who are experiencing similar feelings and challenges. Group therapy sessions have been temporarily cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Specialised treatment for people with ongoing mental health conditions

If you are a member of the public

See your GP for a referral and a Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP). An appointment will then be made for you to attend the service in your area. In most cases, if you have a GP referral and MHCP, there will be no out-of-pocket cost for support, but please contact individual locations to find out if you are eligible.

See our FAQs for common queries about accessing this service.
