Using your cover to support your mental health

From psychological consultations to apps that train your mindfulness, we'll take you through the many ways Medibank health cover can help look after your mental health. 

Finding support that's right for you

When you’re going through a tough time, it’s not always easy to know where to start. When is the right time to seek support and where should you go? We can help advise and guide you.

Supporting your loved ones

Staying healthy 

Whether you want to build your resilience or you’re learning to live with a mental health condition, we can provide guidance and strategies to help you live better.

Understanding mental health conditions 

Understanding the signs, symptoms and treatment options for different mental health conditions can help  you or your loved one find the right support through their mental health journey.

No waiting periods on psychology and counselling consultations

You shouldn’t have to wait for your health insurance to claim for mental health support. That’s why there are no waiting periods for counselling and psychology consultations on Medibank extras and packaged products.§

Mental Health Waiver

With the Mental Health Waiver, eligible hospital members with Restricted psychiatric services can upgrade to a cover with Included psychiatric services and choose to have the standard two-month waiting period waived. Members can use the Mental Health Waiver once in their lifetime.
