Find professional support

The Ahead for Business website lists professional support available to you. The first step in gaining access to these services is to obtain a referral from your GP. In most instances Medicare will cover part or all of a psychologist's fee if your GP makes the referral and completes a Mental Health Treatment Plan with you.
