Download benefit guide

Here for you, here for your health

If you have been treated for major depression, feel assured that you are not alone. The Mental Health Care Programme gives you access to enhanced support and additional benefits to better manage your condition.

What is the Mental Health Care Programme?

The Mental Health Care Programme, together with your Premier Plus GP, will help you actively manage major depression. This programme gives you and your Premier Plus GP access to tools and benefits to monitor and manage your condition to ensure you get high quality and coordinated healthcare and the best outcomes.

The Mental Health Care Programme promotes the diagnosis and initiation of treatment of major depression by General Practitioners (GPs), to reduce the fragmented care between mental and physical health, allowing for faster diagnosis and treatment.

Benefits offered by the Mental Health Care Programme

The Mental Health Care Programme runs over a six-to-twelve-month period.

Members who are eligible to join will have access to the following benefits:

Up to three consultations with your Premier Plus GP

An initial psychotherapy session if referred by your Premier Plus GP

Antidepressant medicine

Additional psychotherapy consultations with your enrolling network psychologist

How to join

To access the Mental Health Care Programme, you must consult with a Premier Plus GP or a psychologist in the Mental Health Care Programme network and meet certain criteria. Your Premier Plus GP can enrol you on the programme through HealthID if you have given consent.
