ADHD


ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that causes problems with executive functioning skills such as planning, organisation, time management, impulse control, motivation, memory, & productivity. ADHD is mostly life-long but does usually respond well to treatment. Effective treatment of ADHD may include medication and/or psychological therapy and can be life-changing for individuals and their families.

Anxiety


Everyone gets anxious at times, but 15-20% of people will suffer disabling and persistent anxiety. There are many different types of anxiety disorders including obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, generalised anxiety disorder, and various phobias. Anxiety disorders don’t usually go away on their own, but effective treatment can reduce or resolve the symptoms.

Depression


Clinical depression affects about 15-20% of people at some stage of life. Sometimes depression goes away on its own but sometimes it sticks around for years in the absence of treatment. Severe and persistent untreated depression can lead to suicide so all depression should be taken seriously. Depression is very treatable and the goal is full recovery.

Bipolar disorder


Bipolar disorder involves periods of clinically depressed mood interspersed with bouts of elevated or agitated highs (mania or hypomania). At its most severe, bipolar disorder may require hospital admission and nearly always requires regular medication. Effective treatment, utilising both medication and psychotherapy, enables people to lead stable and productive lives.

Contact


Mindcare Centre houses psychiatrists (medical doctors) and psychologists (allied health professionals). If you are unsure which clinician to see, please review our clinicians’ profiles or speak to our helpful reception staff for assistance.

 
 

Making an appointment


Our reception staff will offer you the first available appointment with the clinician of your choice. If you wish to claim a Medicare rebate, you will need to obtain a referral from your GP or other suitable medical practitioner. Further information about referrals is available on our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.

Your first appointment


First appointments are often a bit scary, so we do our best to put you at ease. On arrival you are welcome to enjoy a tea or coffee while you fill out some questionnaires. During your appointment you will be asked about your presenting concerns, prior treatment, and life history in order to develop a treatment plan.

 
 

Follow-ups


Appointments might initially be weekly or fortnightly then become less frequent as you make progress. Treatment duration will depend on your presenting problem. Some people continue follow-up over years if needed, while others go back to the care of their GP after recovery.

Staying well


As you approach the end of treatment your clinician will help you work out how to stay well, the signs to look for that might indicate a possible setback, and what to do should this occur. Our job is done when you are well and you don’t need us anymore. Having said that, our door is always open should you have a setback or a new problem arises.
