What is an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker?

Mental wellness is a critical aspect of overall health, and individuals who have concerns in this area often require additional support. This is where accredited mental health social workers come in—we are qualified professionals with expertise in mental health matters, including assessment, intervention, and therapy.

In Australia, accredited mental health social workers work with people from all walks of life, helping you to navigate life’s challenges and providing invaluable therapy. We work in a range of settings, including clinical and community-based environments, and are equipped to provide customized care to meet each individual’s unique mental health needs.

Medicare rebates for services provided by mental health professionals such as accredited  mental health social workers are possible – not just psychologists! As accredited mental health social workers, we are able to deliver psychological therapies under your Mental health care plan referral from your GP. This allows you to claim a rebate for psychological therapy. 

Our accredited mental health social workers use a variety of evidence based treatments, tailored to you and your circumstances, such as:

  • Skills development: problem solving, anger and stress management, emotional regulation, assertiveness, social skills and parenting skills
  • Relaxation and Mindfulness strategies
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
  •  Trauma Informed therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy  (DBT)
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Psychoeducation 

With Grace Therapy accredited mental health social workers are well equipped in addressing mental health challenges you may be facing. We provide a safe and supportive space for individuals and families to talk about their mental health difficulties, receive appropriate treatment, and regain their sense of wellbeing and resilience.
