PROVIDING PSYCHOLOGISTS AND PSYCHIATRISTS TO AUSTRALIA
Chinwag is a psychology and psychiatry service provided by qualified practitioners using video conferencing, connecting Australia with psychologists and psychiatrists. The tele-health platform we use supports health professionals, including general practitioners, in the psychological or psychiatric assessment, education and care of their patients.
Referred patients can now receive accessible, speedy and specialised mental health services via video-conferencing at little or no cost.
Since the 1st November 2017, patients utilising our service will be able to access Medicare rebates, as well as bulk billing.
Chinwag provides an easy and reliable way to connect so that patients can access our services in a confidential environment, with technical support provided to them as required. Patients can make one phone call to our intake staff who match patients’ specific needs to one of our network of highly skilled psychologists and psychiatrists, located nationally.
Chinwag enables us to provide care from 6am to 10pm, seven days a week, right across Australia.

Medicare provides rebates for individuals who may find it more difficult to access a psychologist or psychiatrist otherwise.
