That's right! My Mirror is an Australia wide digital psychology service accessible for all Australians. Where you want. When you want. If you happen to be travelling interstate or overseas, and you'd like to continue your My Mirror psychology services, all you have to do is have access to an internet connection and a device.
Just like face-to-face psychologists, our Registered Psychologists and Clinical Psychologists are registered with the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA), listed with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) and individually approved by My Mirror.
Telehealth, or online, psychology services have similar benefits to face-to-face therapy. As sessions are run online, telehealth psychology may not fulfill every expectation you might have of a face-to-face psychology session. However, the ease of access, accessibility, flexibility and cost-effectiveness of psychology services digitally helps Australians overcome accessibility barriers such as time, geography and finances. This allows you to focus on getting help for your mental health needs, which is the priority of any psychologist.
Legally, online psychologists are unable to make an official diagnosis to fulfill any court order.
A Mental Health Care Plan (MHCP) is a support plan written by a GP and it is available to anyone who feels they would benefit from psychological support for mental health concerns. A MHCP is usually accompanied by a referral from your GP to see a psychologist.
With a MHCP you can now access up to 20 Medicare-subsidised or bulk billed psychology sessions per calendar year (increased from 10 sessions as of the 9th October 2020). After your tenth session, your psychologist will require a MHCP review from your GP, so you can access the remaining 10 psychology sessions subsidised or bulk billed. These changes are in place until March 2021 for telehealth psychology, with the possibility of being extended for telehealth.We have designed our online system such that your GP can easily sign-up with My Mirror and enter your MHCP and referral details into our safe and secure platform. These documents are then easily accessible for your My Mirror psychologist before your first therapy session. If you have a paper referral you can upload this onto our system. In every scenario, we have a solution to help you access convenient online therapy.
