Mental health service referral form – all software formats

Mental health service referral form

GPs and other health professionals can use this form to refer anyone experiencing mental ill health to our mental health referral and access team.

Click the links below to find our referral form in an appropriate file format for your practice or call us directly on (03) 9088 4277* with any queries.

Please note:

  • Our clinicians review referrals and allocate them to the most clinically appropriate service – no matter who funds or provides it. Referrals are primarily for people who cannot access Medicare-funded or private mental health services. However, we can help anyone find the most appropriate service for them.
  • Use of this form requires clinical decision making. This article has tips on how to use it.
  • If you are not a health professional but are seeking mental health support for yourself or a client, family member, friend, colleague or other person, please call Head to Health Victoria on 1800 595 212.
  • This form meets the minimum requirements for billing a Mental Health Treatment Plan (MHTP), therefore GPs are not required to attach a separate MHTP.
  • The Best Practice and MedicalDirector forms are embedded within the software. We encourage general practices to keep their software up to date.
