General Practitioner - 
Your GP or Doctor can provide you with a ‘mental health plan’ in order to refer to most counselling services or specialist services such as headspace. It is recommended that the K10 test be used to assist in guiding the doctor in your psychological needs over the past 30 days. Need a K10? Just ask a co-ordinator at the school or the front office. Ask for a list of specialist for your area and check to see what kind of rebate per counsellor you can receive, what the waiting lists are like and if they bulk bill.
