New LGBTQ Counselling Service offers inclusive Mental Health Care and Support
Posted February 12, 2021
Pride Counselling provides support and assistance on a range of issues including coming out, identity, gender, sexuality, and relationships, as well as dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, grief and loss. Counsellors can also assist on issues relating to the workplace, trauma and addiction. Support can be accessed in person through ACON offices in Surry Hills, Newcastle or Lismore, and also via telehealth (phone or video).
ACON Pride Counselling is a social enterprise offering where clients agree to pay a fee per session. As Pride Counselling staff are Medicare-eligible clinicians, people referred to the service with a Mental Health Care Plan are eligible for a Medicare rebate. Pride Counselling is also accessible via Employee Assistance Programs.
