Mental Health and Wellbeing Service
Our Mental Health and Wellbeing Service is a key component of our clinic. Our GPs are experienced primary mental health care providers supported by our psychiatrist and a team of mental health clinicians and multicultural peer support workers. We specialise in multicultural mental health. Our programs are culture-based and tailored to individual and family cultural needs and delivered in partnership with multicultural peer support workers.
