Become a registered provider of focused psychological strategies at your practice

Originating from evidence-based psychological therapies, focused psychological strategies (FPS) are specific mental health treatment strategies that allow GPs to be better equipped to support those experiencing difficulties with their mental health.

FPS skills training allows for greater access to mental health services, as both an affordable alternative, as well as in remote locations where there may not be an abundance of psychologists or psychiatrists.

GPs interested in learning FPS skills can complete level two accredited FPS skills training activities with the General Practice Mental Health Standards Collaboration (GPMHSC)  and register as a provider of FPS with Medicare, allowing access to item numbers 2725 and 2727.

Visit the GPMHSC website to access training, learn more about the benefits and how to register with Medicare as an FPS provider.
