The eligibility criteria for the You in Mind service has been revised to better meet the needs of our community, following a thorough review.

The provisional (non-GP) referral pathway to the You in Mind service has also been permanently closed following the review.

Patients can continue to be referred to You in Mind via GP referrals and Head to Health.

You in Mind is for residents of South Western Sydney with moderate to severe mental illness, who experience barriers to accessing the Medicare Better Access Initiative.

Clients must come from a priority population group, including those who are:

  • financially disadvantaged
  • experiencing homelessness
  • primarily speaking a language other than English at home
  • Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander
  • experiencing perinatal depression
  • older people
  • residents of rural areas of Wollondilly and Wingecarribee who are geographically isolated and socially disconnected from mental healthcare

Referrals to the You in Mind services delivered by One Door and Connection Emotion Reflection have now re-opened.
