The Eligibility

Telehealth Eligible Areas in Australia

Epsychiatry is now offering psychiatry and psychology services to people Australia wide. Our service was initially only available to people living in eligible regional and remote areas of Australia. However, with the recent growth of telehealth in response to COVID 19, we are pleased to have expanded our mental health services to all Australians, including those living in metro areas.
