About LikeMind >
We work together with you to address your mental health needs and any other concerns you may have, as well as link you with other services you may need.
Your journey begins with a trained healthcare professional, working with you to understand your current situation and listening to your specific needs. Together we will create a coordinated care plan based on your goals and we will then connect you with the services you need.
LikeMind is funded by the NSW Ministry of Health.
We’re here for you. LikeMind was launched in Western Sydney to provide assistance to those seeking support in their mental health journey.
Once you have completed an intake assessment and care planning and are seeing a psychologist at LikeMind under your mental health care plan, a LikeMind clinician will continue to support you with care reviews every 12 weeks. A care review involves checking-in to see how your treatment is going and providing you with any referrals to other services that may help to further support you. After your sixth and tenth appointments with a psychologist, your GP and your psychologist will review your progress and, along with yourself, decide if any further treatment is required. When all parties are satisfied that you no longer require support, your LikeMind clinician will assist with closing your file and discuss plans with you for ongoing self-care.
With a mental health care plan, the cost of the appointments with a psychologist is fully reimbursed by Medicare. Essentially, LikeMind is a free mental health service!
LikeMind offers a range of other activities including social groups, therapy dogs and overall health and wellness activities.
