A reminder that our Psychological Therapy Services have been extended to include people significantly impacted by bushfire, including emergency services personnel and their families.
The PTS Bushfire Stream is suitable for anyone in the Blue Mountains, Hawkesbury, Lithgow or Penrith experiencing high levels of distress resulting from the 19/20 ‘Black Summer’ Bushfires.
Anyone wishing to access this stream must consult with and be referred by their GP. A mental health plan is not needed however GPs may choose to complete one at their discretion.
The stream provides individuals or families up to 10 face to face or telehealth sessions and is available until June 2021. Families who meet the eligibility criteria may be referred and seen together rather than individually. To make a referral, GPs must call the PTS line on 1800 223 365 and complete the PTS referral form.
