Telehealth Services for
Rural & Remote Clients

Psychological support from the comfort of your own home

Rural people experiencing mental health issues often find travel and distance a barrier to accessing psychological support. Medicare funds psychological services via Telehealth to people located in rural and remote Australia.

Regions include Southern Downs, Western Downs and Maranoa servicing towns such as Dalby, Warwick, Chinchilla, Stanthorpe, Roma, Goondiwindi, Charleville, St George, Cunnamulla, Wandoan, Taroom and Miles.
