Our office will reopen on 13/7/2020 and face-to-face consultation can be provided again. However, telehealth will continue to be available if it's your preferred model of service delivery during COVID-19.
We have been following guidance from the Government and the local health authorities on COVID-19 to ensure we have the right plans and resources in place to safeguard your health and well-being. Here are some steps we are taking and steps we are asking of you to ensure we are all being proactive with safety.
What we are doing:
Our daily cleaning procedures are already thorough at MPC; however, we are taking extra time to clean and disinfect so that our facility remains a safe and welcome space for clients, visitors and staff. Our dedicated staff is wiping down and disinfecting all desks, tables, handles, knobs etc on an hourly basis with extra vigilance.
We are using air purifiers as well increasing ventilation in our facility.
Open on Saturdays
Our office is now opened on Saturday mornings. If weekdays appointments deem difficult for you, please feel free to make advantage of this opportunity for weekend appointments!
Nursing Hub for Moreton Bay North sub-regions
Morayfield Psychology Centre has been selected by the local government to hold a mental health nursing hub for the whole Moreton Bay North Subregions from January 2017. This new initiative named 'Mental Health Nursing in North Brisbane (MHNiB)' allows us to have additional 5 mental health nurses on the team. The nurses of MHNiB help with people with severe and complex mental illnesses, covering the catchment areas from Mango Hill to Kilcoy. The nurses can visit people at GP practices or at home to make the service more accessible. The MHNiB program is fully funded by the Brisbane North Primary Health Network. To find out more about this program, please feel free to talk to one of our nurses or admin officers.
At Morayfield Psychology Centre, we run a Dialetic Behavioural Therapy (DBT) group every Tuesday morning. DBT is an evidence based and a well known therapeutic approach to help with Borderline personality, emotional regulation, mindfulness, self-awareness, and self soothing for crisis moments. You may be eligible for funding for group sessions. Please contact us to find out more information.
