Mentally Fit Australia provides short term support through sessions with a trained mental health clinician and is suitable for people aged 12 years and over. Sessions are generally held fortnightly and they can be face to face, over the phone or via video conferencing depending on your location. 

The Mentally Fit Australia program has been developed to make sure that people who may have traditionally found it difficult to access mental health care are able to receive the support that they need. These groups include, those who are less able to pay fees, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, people experiencing perinatal depression, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and people living in rural and remote areas of South Australia.

To access the Mentally Fit Australia program you will need to visit your GP for a referral. They will also complete a Mental Health Treatment plan for you.
