Our aim is simple - to ensure psychologists can deliver the best possible care and that vulnerable Australians have access to quality mental health care, whenever and wherever they need it.

The campaign has three main objectives:

Reverse cuts to Medicare-subsidised psychology sessions

to support Australians living with mental ill-health and struggling to access the services they need.

Allow provisional psychologists to provide services under Medicare

to create a larger pool of qualified mental health professionals that the community can affordably access.

End the two-tier Medicare rebate system for psychologists

and implement a single Medicare rebate of $150 per client per session.


the number of work-ready provisional psychologists


psychology sessions needed for complex clients


the Medicare rebate needed for affordable access


recommendations to be implemented NOW to improve Australians’ mental health
