Psychology is now more accessible than ever for people with Type 1 Diabetes

The Family Centre has pioneered the delivery of type 1 diabetes specific psychology services and this week were excited to announce they are making this service more accessible than ever for people with type 1 diabetes in the community.  

From 1 July 2024 the Family Centre will be offering bulk billed psychology services with their own Registered Psychologist Natalia Hazell, to eligible people, with no out-of-pocket expense. 
This service is available for people with type 1 diabetes, who hold a healthcare card, veterans’ card, or pension card along with a valid mental health care plan. 

All other clients with a valid mental health care plan will incur a gap payment. Thanks to the Family Centre’s generous donors and supporters they are able to subsidise this service and keep this gap to a minimum (see pricing details here). 

All clients with a mental health care plan will be able to access a Medicare rebate on psychology appointments with Nat. For new patents this will be on offer from 1 July, with existing clients having until 1 August to arrange a mental health care plan from their GP, to access the Medicare rebate. 

Alternatively, for people without a GP care plan, many private health funds may now offer rebates for psychology services. Please check rebates with your health fund. 

If you’d like to work with Nat to explore your thoughts, emotions, strengths, and feelings, make an appointment by contacting the Family Centre on 08 9446 6446.  

Virtual and face-to-face appointments are offered. For all the details on pricing and costs head over to
