Health and Counselling:


Psychologists and GP and Psychiatric Services:

Toowoomba has the Acute and Community Mental Health Service (see below) and a large selection of private Psychologists and GPs.  There are private Psychiatrists. There is one private adolescent psychiatrist working out of 7 Springs medical centre.

If you are in need of help, your general practitioner is a good first port of call. As well as providing medical help and support, your GP can write up a mental health plan which allows medicare funding for counseling from a psychologist or your GP can can refer you to a psychiatrist or other health specialist as needed.

We suggest that if you are booking an appointment with a new clinician, that you ask if the clinician is comfortable with treating LGBTQIA people.

PFLAG Toowoomba can offer advice if you are struggling to find a health provider that meets your needs.
