Brisbane MIND (Mental Illness)

The Brisbane MIND program* provides funded mental health services for vulnerable and disadvantaged people experiencing moderate mental health conditions.

Clients referred through the Brisbane MIND program can receive up to twelve (12) funded psychological treatment sessions per calendar year (i.e. no gap fee).

To be eligible for a Brisbane MIND referral, the client must:

  • hold a current Health Care card or Pension Card
  • live in the North Brisbane or Moreton Bay regions
  • be aged 12 years and older
  • have a moderate mental health condition (not acute or severe)
  • be vulnerable and disadvantaged
  • have difficulty accessing other services
  • be able to benefit from short term psychological intervention
  • have a current mental health treatment plan (MHTP), and
  • be referred to the Brisbane MIND program by your GP (Brisbane MIND referral)

Please note that GPs only have access to a limited number of referrals to the Brisbane MIND program each year and referrals are at your GPs discretion.  Your GP can provide you with further information about your eligibility and/or their capacity to refer you to Q-Psych under the Brisbane MIND program (due to referral cap). Some clients also may be eligible for the Brisbane MIND Suicide Prevention Program.

*To access the Brisbane MIND or Brisbane MIND Suicide Prevention programs, your GP will need to make the referral to one of the following Q-Psych psychologists (approved Brisbane MIND service providers):

  • Jade Jensen
  • Diane Barber
  • Dr Melieta Bianchi
  • Dr Chelsea Leach
  • Shannon Strecker

Please contact Q-Psych to check who may be the most appropriate psychologist to suit your specific treatment needs.

*Brisbane MIND is funded by the Australian  Government Department of Health and is managed by the Brisbane North Primary Health Network.
