Beyond Blue have launched a coronavirus mental wellbeing support service. It is accessible online and over the phone on 1800 512 348.
You are now able to consult with your doctor, mental health professional, or other medical services using either the phone or via video conferencing and it will be covered by medicare. If you are seeking a repeat prescription, or medical advice that does not require you to visit a medical clinic, telehealth is a safe way to do this during the pandemic.
