About Pyschlopaedia

Psychlopaedia™ is an online publication devoted to psychology. It aims to make this immense field – the discoveries, the disorders, treatments, as well as insights into the human mind and behaviour – accessible to all.

It is published by the Australian Psychological Society, the leading organisation for psychologists in Australia.

Healthy Minds is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health, using both Access to Allied Psychological Services (ATAPS) and Better Access funding. The service is managed locally by the North Coast Primary Health Network.

Psychologists provide their expertise by assessing and diagnosing a range of problems, developing strategies and treatments, and offering guidance and support. Psychologists provide these services in a wide range of public and private settings, including health, mental health, disability,family services, community, schools, corporate and business, education, sport and the performing arts.

Lifeline is a national charity providing all Australians experiencing a personal crisis with access to 24 hour crisis support and suicide prevention services.
Somewhere in Australia there is a new call to Lifeline every minute.

Leading, Collaborating, Advising, Reporting. Our second Report Card continues the National Mental Health Commission’s commitment for change, building upon the foundations and whole of life scope established in our inaugural Report Card, A Contributing Life: the 2012 National Report Card on Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, released exactly 12 months ago.

Did you know?

A GP referral to a psychologist under Medicare is not valid for a specified period of time or for a calendar year as is often the case for GP referrals to specialists. Rather, it is valid for the stated number of services, up to a maximum of six services. If the client ceases treatment prior to the completion of services, a report must be provided to the referrer when it is clear the service has ended. If the client represents at a later date and completes the course of treatment, the psychologist must write another report to the referring practitioner.
