Clinical psychology provides assessment, diagnosis and treatment of psychological and emotional problems. The aim of psychological therapy in the Rehabilitation, Aged & Community Care team is to help you to manage psychological changes as a result of the illness or injury that led to you requiring rehabilitation. This may include:
- anxiety symptoms (e.g. panic attacks, fear of falling)
- symptoms of depression
- trauma response
- difficulties with anger
- problems maintaining or initiating sleep
Psychologists work as part of a team, to help with enhancing your psychological wellbeing. Psychology assessments and interventions help with your rehabilitation and improve your mental health and day-to-day functioning through non-drug approaches.
The service is available to adults who live in the ACT and is free for Medicare or Asylum Seeker cardholders.
You need a referral from another care provider in the Rehabilitation, Aged & Community Care service. You must also meet eligibility criteria.
