To that end, we have put together a team of caring and compassionate health professionals to assist you by offering a psychological and clinical therapy service.
Our care ranges from someone to talk to during stressful and overwhelming times, through to ongoing management of complex mental health issues.
Our mental health experts are experienced in working with people who have depression, anxiety, autism, and psychosis. As well as those with relationship problems, experiencing life crises, adjustment issues, trauma or family conflict.
In partnership with our patients we utilise a range of interventions to help people with mental health disorders, including cognitive behavioural therapy, behavioural interventions, relaxation and stress management techniques and family therapy.
In August 2020, we welcomed Headspace, who are co-located at our Regional MediCentre at Hastings. Headspace is an organisation providing early intervention mental health support and assistance for young people experiencing complex mental health issues.
You can access our mental health services or Headspace Hastings, with a referral from your Atticus Health GP and bulk billed sessions may be available with an approved Mental Health Care Plan.
Headspace Hastings is now open for the community.
Co-located at Atticus Regional Medicentre, Headspace Hastings is a new service that complements its parent Headspace centre in Dandenong, to provide early intervention mental health support and assistance for young people experiencing complex mental health issues in a primary care setting. The site is located at 2104 Frankston-Flinders Rd, Hastings and accepts referrals from Headspace Dandenong by calling 1800 367 968.
