Eligibility

Steps Mental Health is excited to be able to accept referrals from multiple sources, meaning that you can refer yourself, as well as friends and family members. GPs and other healthcare professionals can also refer their clients.

This service is free and confidential, but eligibility is determined by where you live or work. To find out more about eligibility, click here or call our team on 1800 378 377  to find out if you meet the criteria.

You can access the Steps Mental Health services if you are:

  • Living or working in the City of Boroondara, Manningham, Whitehorse or Monash
  • Need support with your mental health or emotional well-being from a community service
  • Unable to access or afford private mental health services (such as a private psychologist)

Stepped Care services are funded by the Australian Government under the PHN program, so there is no cost for you to access the service.

You don’t need a GP referral to use our services, but it’s helpful to have your GP involved in your care.

To find out if Stepped Care is the right service for you, please call us on 9810 3084 or make a referral online here.
