Exemption from accredited mental health training

The GPMHSC would like to invite GPs who have completed mental health training and further education in cognitive behavioural therapy or interpersonal therapy to apply for exemption from accredited training in order to register with Medicare as GP provider of Focussed Psychological Strategies (FPS).

Although mental health training is strongly encouraged, GPs who are able to demonstrate that they have achieved the learning outcomes of FPS Skills Training (FPS ST) are able to apply to the GPMHSC for an exemption. GPs may then by eligible to gain access to specific mental health MBS items for the provision of FPS.
