At RRI Advisory we know that your financial health and mental health are intrinsically linked. Navigating through financial difficulties can be stressful and taxing on anyone involved. It can often lead to feelings of isolation and depression. Therefore, it is important to know that there is support available to people during these difficult times.

Other Support Services
Alternatively, you should speak to your GP/Doctor about a mental health care plan. The plan identifies what type of health care you need to assist with your mental health. It may also refer you to local mental health services.
If you have a mental health care plan, you will be entitled to access Medicare Rebates for up to 20 individual psychological appointments per calendar year until 30 June 2022. This gives you access – subsidised by Medicare – to certain psychologists, occupational therapists and social workers.
