Focus Plus

Youth Focus Plus is a program of Youth Focus, accessed through the Medicare system, which provides bulk-billed psychological counselling to young people aged 12 to 25 years eligible for a Mental Health Care Plan.

Youth Focus Plus clinicians are registered psychologists who specialise in youth mental health and suicide prevention.

Psychological services offered by Youth Focus Plus clinicians include:
• Psychological counselling
• Psycho-education
• Motivational interviewing
• Relaxation strategies
• Social skills training
• Interpersonal psychotherapy
• Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)

General practitioners wishing to refer to Youth Focus Plus will need to provide a Mental Health Care Plan that can be sent directly to Youth Focus:

54 Goodwood Parade, Burswood WA 6100
Fax: (08) 6266 4300

Upon receiving the Plan, Youth Focus will contact the young person to initiate an appointment. Should the young person require additional services outside of the 10 Medicare counselling sessions, Youth Focus Plus clinicians can provide three extra no-fee appointments.

For further information, please contact the Triage Coordinator at Youth Focus on (08) 6266 4333.
