Psychological Support Services (PSS)
The Psychological Support Services (PSS) program commenced on Monday 9 January 2017 and replaced our former Access to Allied Psychological Services (ATAPS) program.
PSS provides FREE short term face-to-face psychological services to populations who have been identified as underserviced and/or hard to reach.
Services are delivered by appropriately trained and qualified mental health professionals including: Psychologists (general and clinical), mental health nurses, mental health accredited social workers, mental health accredited occupational therapists and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander mental health workers.
PSS operates within a stepped care model promoting person centred care, targeting the needs of the individual. Stepped care allows for flexibility for people to move across service levels to support their recovery.
This is not a crisis service, in an emergency please call triple zero (000)
