Gidget House provides a free professional psychological support service for pregnant women and new parents suffering anxiety and depression.
Located in North Sydney, this facility is easily accessible and provides compassionate holistic care for patients and their families. Our goal is to create a safe haven for parents, a single location where mothers and fathers are respected and the needs of each unique family are paramount.
Initially clinical services include psychological services with access to psychiatric and social worker referral. We are well networked with other services in the area enabling cross referral if required.
Payment for services provided by Gidget House are covered by Medicare bulk billing. A referral and a mental health care plan from a GP are required in order to access this funding.
Parents referred to Gidget House will receive:
Initial Assessment – meeting with the client to explore needs, concerns and solutions.
Individual therapy – one-to-one therapies or counselling for perinatal mental health issues.
Psychiatric support – where necessary – providing treatment for mental health disorders or referral to a psychiatrist.
