PSS is open for referral!

11 May 2020

The Psychological Support Services (PSS) programme provides free psychological support to individuals with mild-moderate mental health needs that are unable to access support via the Medicare Benefit Scheme, due to financial hardship.

PSS is open for referrals and here to support your patients with telehealth and some face-to-face services, with physical distancing.

To check whether your client is eligible for this programme, please see the criteria on our website: CESPHN website 

Please use our new online PSS referral form or refer via Healthlink, as fax referrals will no longer be available as of 1 June 2020. This new referral form meets the minimum requirements for billing a GP MHTP, averting the need to complete any additional documentation.

We acknowledge that there have been a few technical glitches since launching the new referral form in April, but these have now been addressed and we continue to work hard to ensure the form captures quality clinical information and is user friendly. A new shorter PSS review form will be released soon! An RTF version for your medical software is also on its way!

Contact the CESPHN Mental Intake Team on 1300 170 554 if you have any questions.
