For health care professionals

This referral form is received by a clinical triage and intake team who facilitate referrals into GCPHN-funded mental health services, within a stepped care model. Note: the referral form complies with Mental Health Treatment Plan requirements for billing items 2700/2701 or 2715/2717.

To download the mental health referral templates in general practice software please visit the referral templates page. Scroll down to the mental health heading and download the required format under 'Public Community Services'.
